Trip report

Pre-trip notes:
I'm nearing the end of a year-long vacation in Munich, Germany as a foreign exchange student. As of this report, mushrooms are quite easy to obtain in Germany, but I can't go into too much detail on this (if you do some research you'll find them). This is the second time I've used shrooms obtained in this manner. I ate 2.5 g of some super-strong Stropharia Cubensis the first time and was quite satisfied with the visual experience. This time I'm trying the Panaeolus (Copelandia) cyanescens, something completely new to me. One gram of the Panaeolus cyanescens is supposed to approximate around five grams of the Cubensis in strength, but we'll see. . .

Downing the Scheiße:
(14:00) While I'm drinking the tea, I'll tell about how I made it. I made the tea by boiling a couple cups of water in a saucepan. I squeezed the juice from a lemon into the boiling water because I've read that the acid supposedly makes the goodies in the shrooms jump over to the water a little better. Then I dumped in some sugar and a package of instant spiced apple cider. I boiled the gram of shrooms in the water for around 15 minutes, then I put the saucepan in the fridge to cool it down. I didn't feel like drinking hot tea on such a warm, beautiful day.

After the tea was sufficiently cool, I spooned out the shrooms and poured the liquid into a tall tea glass (eigentlich ein Bierglas). Wow. I first ate the spoonful of mushy shrooms and the nastiness I'm accustomed to when eating dry caps was non-existent. The taste of dry caps had started to put a bad spin on my sessions, so I'll be overjoyed if this goes well. The tea itself doesn't taste bad at all. If the effects are impressive enough, I'll continue to use this method from now on. Halfway finished drinking the brew, I'm already finding writing difficult and my fingers are jittering with extra energy.

Checking in:
(14:37) I'm signing out for now. I can tell already that spending time at the keyboard won't be very much fun. The combination of the hawaiians and the tea and the music and....... is quite overwhelming. Time for a ciggie.

Checking in [again]:
(15:50) This is really difficult, but I feel like its importanat. I'm going to let all of my error#s ()typing go by. this was the best bomb I#v ever dropped on my head. what a cure for boredom to say the veryyyyy least. i feel very god like, in the sense that all people are godlike. theyre interesting, intricate .. very intricate

as an aside note: dont call your friends girlfriends cell phones while youre peakin. word. or at least be prepared to explain yourself later.

(18:20) I'm back to normal enough now. I think this report speaks for itself. Now, please, repeat.
