Awamaki director Noah Silber-Coats shares this tidbit of local culture…
Earlier today, while riding a combi (minibus) to a nearby community I overheard this conversation between two women:
Woman 1: Nice weather lately. I don’t think it’s going to rain any more this year.
Woman 2: Yes. Except, I had a dream about beer last night. Doesn’t that mean it’s going to rain?
Woman 1: No, I think when you dream about chicha that means it’s going to rain. Dreaming about beer, I’m not sure what that means.
Woman 2: No, I’m pretty sure beer or chicha means rain.
Woman 1: I guess you’re right. Any dream about liquid means more rain. It will probably rain a little bit more this month.
Can you predict the weather based on dreams? Maybe only in Ollantaytambo.
