Storyline

Bruce visits the Peruvian Achuar tribe, which lives in a pristine Amazon forest region. His host village is reluctant and mistrusting, which makes sense as neighboring communities, which accepted deals with oil companies, suffered wide-spreading pollution and cultural ruin. Bruce finds helping with logging and fishing particularly hard because of the daily purification with wayous, a beverage from a bitter vine, which induces violent vomiting. Much more is supposed to allow visions, but Bruce's rational ego resist. That occurs again in a city downstream, where it's mixed with hallucinogenic leaves such as dattura. He passes the Brazilian border and arrives in a town just before carnival, Rio style with a weird twist: everybody cross-dresses. Written by KGF Vissers
