In the spring of 2005 I hiked the sacred mountains of Peru with the Cueros, or medicine people. Our days were filled with prayer, ceremony and respect. Respect for each other, for nature and life. The Cueros were wonderful hosts; they shared all the work, and the highest “ranking” medicine man worked side by side with the “ranch” hands. They taught us their traditions and shared their food. In Peru no one goes hungry because everything is shared.
