Dona Lucy

Dona Lucy lives high in the Peruvian Andes in Ninacaca. She performs a ceremony almost every time I show up there. Sweet, kind and very funny, dona Lucy reads coca leaves and comes up with information she couldn’t possibly know. She also makes a great maca soup. I have tremendous affection for dona Lucy.
