New Year

It took me about 2 hours before the ball drop to get genuinely excited to ring in the new year. I’m sure in hindsight 2016 will be a great year but not having a steady job will do that to a man. There is ONE thing that made my mood a whole lot better: My Girlfriend. My mouth literally dropped when she came out.


I had to wake up my neighbor so he can take this Pic.


Having a beautiful date is an amazing pick-me-up, let me tell you. I took a shower, smoked a little weed, drank a little rum, and threw on the best outfit I could muster from my wardrobe deficient closet. After spraying my favorite cologne on I was ready to hit the buzzing streets of Miraflores. My house is a 20 minute walk to LarcoMar, the most visited attraction in Lima, where I suspected there would be a cool scene with a big crowd. Once there, We saw an awesome party at Mango’s, a restaurant, and decided to give it a try. After being charged by the bouncer 150 Soles ( about 50 dollars)  for entry we rushed upstairs to catch the fireworks. It was 11:59.45 When I ran into my Uncle Lucho. I haven’t seen him since I’ve been here and out of all time and places we have a nice reunion.

It was the perfect way to end a perfect night. It was a perfect start to a New Year’s.


What is #themacajourney anyways?


Black Maca and Huanarpo Macho Powder. 

So no but seriously, what is Black Maca? Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a root harvested here in the highlands of Peru. There are different types of maca and they are very simple to distinguish due to the varieties of color they exude. I had heard about the root vaguely and wanted to do a little more research on the root. About a month ago I visited a local market here in Lima. I was in search of something that would improve my sex-life. I had felt that my libido was low, so low that it was taking a toll on my relationship. Sometimes, i’d want to engage in love making and physically I just couldn’t perform. FRUSTRATING to say the least. I had also been experiencing very low energy. What a mess! Once in the market  I started asking  merchants about their products and was open to suggestions. After explaining my dilemma their was a consensus: Take Black Maca.

Their was one other root that i had learned about that day, Huanarpo Macho. And that this root was the real aphrodisiac and natural performance enhancer that i was looking for. Together, they make a perfect combo.Black Maca for energy and Libido booster and Huanarpo Macho as an aphrodisiac and overall healthier sex-life. I bought a bag for about 30 soles ( 10 dollars) of 200 grams that contain both. I have been consuming for the past month and I plan on creating a journal of my experience. This is the #THEMACAJOURNEY.

28 de Julio

img_7092July 28th, 1821. The day Peru gained its independence from the old world power that was Spain. 28 de Julio is also the name of the street that I live on here in Lima and I like to think that it is poetic that I am living on this very street when I myself am fighting for liberation.

My struggle is within. Like all good battles, the one within is the hardest. I am strong as I am weak. I am smart as I am ignorant. I am filled with vitality as I am drained of it. In my mind is where I fight my battle.I am my own Jose de San Martin. In my mind is where I’ll overcome my biggest challenge: myself.

July 28th, today this date is reserved for joyous celebration where Peruvians travel domestically and spend time with their families and friends. It is a day commemorating its independance and fallen heroes. Av. 28 de Julio, This is where I celebrate MY liberation. This is where I win my battle.



Smiling is contagious 😀

Hello All,

What I WILL share with you is as follows:
