  People's Wisdon at Feira do Nordeste by RTL
by RafaelTheSecond

Medicine herbs and People' s Wisdon, the North East is full of old man who knows about medcines, mixtures of roots and leaves, and they have everything to cure eery desease. I went there at Feira de São Cristovão with Pierre, and I bought what they called GARRAFADA, it is a very bitter mixture of roots which they say it is good for sex functions and also gives you energy for physical activities.

It is a torture to drink 3 cups of the GARRAFADA a day, but I can tell you it works!

I am always in the mood to work and sexually speaking I feel like a volcano in Cracatoa island!;)
