Cubensis significa vir de Cuba ', e refere-se ao tipo de localidade publicado por Earle. Substitui o Psilocybe cubensis em grande parte da sua extensão tropical e foi recentemente relatado na Austrália, Índia e Tailândia. É macroscopicamente idêntico ao Psilocybe cubensis, diferindo apenas pelos seus esporos menores e pleurocistídios consistentemente menores. O Psilocybe cubensis é provavelmente o mais amplamente conhecido dos cogumelos contendo psilocibina usados ​​para desencadear experiências psicodélicas após a ingestão. Os cogumelos são coletados e cultivados como um enteógeno e uma droga recreativa, apesar de certas quantidades serem ilegais em muitos países. Mega Mushroom Growing and Incubator Kit Cresce até 30 frascos de uma só vez! Muitos cogumelos psilocibinos estão no gênero Psilocybe, mas espécies em vários outros gêneros contêm as drogas.

Custos de viagem no Brasil Devido às grandes distâncias no Brasil, o voo ocasional pode ser uma necessidade e pode não custar muito mais do que uma viagem de ônibus de longa distância. Para 2016-1919, estão previstos investimentos para a área internacional, construção de novos estacionamentos, quatro novos hotéis nas proximidades, uma nova área de negócios e outras instalações. A maioria das grandes empresas de ônibus faz reservas e vende ingressos pela Internet, mas você deve retirar seu ingresso com algum tempo de antecedência. Existem todas as empresas usuais de aluguel de carros nos aeroportos. O serviço de trens no Brasil é quase inexistente. Existe um serviço de transporte de turismo em Foz do iguaçu e entre São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro, um serviço regular de São Paulo para Brasília e um... read more

We are up at 5 am this morning to fly 750 miles south-west to Foz do Iguacu on the border between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. The old man has survived the night without succumbing to dysentery – a fact he puts down to a combination of luck and having killed the germs by drinking caipirinhas. We have booked and prepaid for our taxi, which sounds like a recipe for disaster. But 15 minutes ahead of schedule and before we’ve even had chance to worry about what to do if it doesn’t arrive, we get a call to say the driver is in reception. One advantage of being up so early is that we see the sunrise over Rio en route to the airport. It really is something; the city and its monoliths silhouetted by the bright ... read more

Right near the Brazilian entrance to the Iguazu Falls is a bird park. Very beautifully set in rainforest, immaculate paths, with an emphasis on conservation and bringing back endangered species, it is a pleasant way to spend half a day. Entrance can be paid by credit card and is only 35- Rials. You can get them from the Argentinian side by using any of the tourist buses to the Brazilian side of the falls and doing a one way trip. You must tell the driver you are not returning as you need to have your passport processed both in the Argentinian and Brazilian side of the borders. The staff as well as the signage is in Portuguese, Spanish and English, and the food at the park was realistically priced, 25Rials for a ciabatta with fillet Mignon ... read more

Well this has been quite some time since our last blog, we are at the moment in Iguasi Faĺls in Brazil, trying to escape the bad weather of Chile and San Paulo Brazil where the rainy weather has finally caught up with us. We left Equador Guyaquil and traveled to Peru, first stop was Tumbes, we quickly got on a local bus to the beach, a town called Mancora, although Mancora beach was quite dirty the surf breaks were quite spectaclar with the young from world wide enjoying the surf. A busy little tourist town that was awake throughout the night partying we found a nice hotel with its own private gardens and pool a little way from town and caught our breath from the overnight bus that we travelled on from Equador. In our hotel ... read more

Le carnaval… moment de convivialité de franche rigolade, où chacun peut révéler à travers son déguisement ses plus grands délires et fantasmes! Et bien ici , non! Ici c’est la guerre!!!! Un gringo en Bolivie pendant les 4 jours de carnaval, c’est comme un petit agneau qui se balade dans une ville remplit de loups. Bombes à eau, sceaux d’eau planqués, mousse à raser, pistolets snipers de tous les côtés, la bataille d’eau est générale et sans répit. Deux solutions: rester planqué dans sa tanière ou se jeter à corps perdu dans la bataille! Nous avons pu découvrir en rasant les murs et en sprintant dans chaque grandes avenues, la ville minière de Potosi, puis la magnifique capitale Sucre. Suite à cette petite dose d’urbanisation, nous nous enfonçons dans une petite ville hors du temps; Samaipata. ... read more

We left our cool Airbnb place in Buenos Aires and headed to the local airport for our flight up to Puerto Iguazu on the Argentine side of the falls. For once the travelling went without a hitch and we managed a sneak peak of the falls whilst we were landing. Once we arrived we were hit with the jungle humidity! It was in the mid 30s and all of our clothes automatically felt damp with the moisture in the air. After spending the night in a room that had no air conditioning (just a really squeaky ceiling fan that looked like it was about to fall on us at any moment) we were a little tired but headed to the National Park on the Argentine side of the falls. We were told there are more trails ... read more

“Everything?” I asked, wide eyed with fear, “All of the bags?” “They took everything,” the girl said, “They don’t care. They cut off the bus with their cars. They had big guns. Made the bus driver pull over to the side of the road. Another car came up from the back. Four more guys jumped out and ran up to the bus’s door. There was no fight. They just took everything and left. That’s what happened. That’s Brazil.” The girl telling Jon and I the story was from Israel. She was of course talking about her Brazilian public transportation experience. …The same 26hr. bus from Iguazu Falls to Rio that Jon and I were to take just 24 hours from now. We met this girl on the bus that took us from the Argentinean side of ... read more

So there I was sat in my dorm, surrounded by my other eleven dorm-mates. After another night without much sleep and two flights, I was exhausted. From the 33⁰C heat of Brasilia, it was a relatively chilly 16⁰C here in Foz do Iguacu. It was raining. Hard. I wasn’t feeling particularly sociable and I had administrative shit to sort out. I was feeling pretty miserable. I wanted my hotel room back. That night, I was supposed to have a quiet, early one – but by that stage I thought it’d better to try and make some friends to feel a bit more comfortable in my new surrounds rather than moping around alone. I got talking to two Brits in the hostel’s outdoor common area – Billy and Lloyd – and a Dutch guy, Siros. I didn’t ... read more

Hey People, Iguassu Falls was created as the result of a volcanic eruption that left a large crack in the earth. Taller than Niagara Falls (and twice as wide), Iguassu consists of 275 cascading falls spread out over nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) in a horseshoe shape. During the rainy season, between November and March, the rate of water that flows over the falls can reach more than 450,000 cubic feet (12,750 cubic m) per second. In short, it’s a phenomenal natural wonder that we want to see from as many angles as possible, which is why we are going over to the Brazilian side today to see the falls. After our free breakfast at the hostel, the Viator Company who we booked through picked us up again. Leaving Puerto Iguazú behind, we crossed the border ... read more
