#8: Ayahuasca (part 2)

EPISODE 8: Ayahuasca w/ Petteri & Rebecca (Part 2) 
Following Episode 7's preparation for the Ayahuasca ceremony, we join Petteri and Rebecca the day after their ceremony. This is Rebecca's first time whereas it is Petteri's 10th time. We learn that sometimes the buildup doesn't match the outcome, but it's just as exciting in it's own way. Rebecca works out some things she experienced while modeling in Asia and Petteri starts to examine how to run his retouching business.
