Marri, update II

This is one of the many mariri vines at the UDV Center and I hope I see the day when our vines at the Bosque reach this size. You can see how the vines climb on top of one another, creating a very entrancing relationship. Look at those little flowers coming off secondary vines. Cut up pieces of the mariri vines are smashed with wooden clubs against a ceremonial log and then added to the brew that eventually becomes the ayahuasca tea.
