All of our couchsurfing hosts were interesting people, but the Shaman most of all! If for no other reason than, how many Shaman have you ever met? I have heard and read about Shamanism and some of their practices, but none quite like this Shaman described.
I enjoyed our time in St Louis, as brief as it was and let me tell you that seeing the Gateway to the West in person beats any photo that you will ever see. I didn’t have an opportunity to check out much art, b ut enjoyed the architecture of the city. I will be traveling east to west and back more frequently now that I have a son in California, so I’ll be able to tell more after my next trip.
