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.
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.
Black Maca Root
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.
Huanarpo Macho Root
July 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 😀
I’ve decided to write my experiences down in this blog in the hope of improving my well being in aspects that I will shortly name and to serve as a memoir when i am older and (hopefully) wiser. My goal is to share the most important things that are happening in my life at the moment with the exception of my girlfriend which I love dearly and look forward to spending my future with her. What I WILL share with you is as follows:
- The Maca Journey : Documenting my experience consuming Black Maca powder and Huanarpo Macho. I have been mixing it in my water for the past 2 weeks with the aim of improving my sex life and fitness goals.
- Living in Peru: The experiences of living in Lima Peru.
- Entrepreneurship/Work: Currently working in Lima as an English Teacher while i look for a better paying job. Also would love to be a self starter.
