Now I am in the city of Pimentel (Northern Peru). It is the first time for me in South America. I spent my first day at the marketplace of Chiclayo; from there I moved to the museum of Tùcume.

Both at the marketplace and in the museum there were displayed many kinds of objects to do magic, both white and black.

According to the Peruvian witches, the work of magic must be performed only on Tuesday or Friday to be effective; if performed in different days the magic doesn’t work.

The master healer of Tùcume preserves the tradition of healing through herbs and ceremonies. They celebrate ceremonial masses using a portable altar. The objects are placed on the altar in strict order. ‘Purgatorio’, who is an ancient deity, is present in the form of a stone brought from the mountain.

The master healer cures people using his arts which date back to the ancient world of his ancestors. Is it true? Who knows!
