I went to the Coca Museum. Coca is a big deal in Peru. It is legal to buy and they sell it in lots of locations. I went to the market and saw it available by the pound. They sell it at all the tourist sites and I bought a small bag for $1. I tried it. It gave me some energy and made my mouth a little numb. At the hostels and restaurants they serve coca tea. It’s really good. Coca is a national product in Peru. There are many products that are mode from coca. One, of course, is cocaine. This is where the problems with coca cultivation start to take on a whole new meaning. Note that the vast majority of coca users in Peru have absolutely nothing to do with cocaine. They use the coca leaf in the same way it has been used for thousands of years. The politics of the coca leaf are … interesting.
