Ooo that looks so good! It looks shaped though. Is it shaped into those balls and oval shapes? Where do you get it from and it is crunchy? How long have u been eating clay?

Purchased clay on Tuesday. Been eating small chunks throughout the day since then. But i think tomorrow ill get rid of it because I really dont want to eat it more than necessary. Trying to eat it for only three to four days at a time then take my few months break. So now ill have my last chunk tomorrow then my next taste in say September or October.

Happy munching everyone. Oh I got the clay in a packet has a very light tint to it its kind of like the Mavu like I said.

Hey

the clay is sold in cape town cbd just outside the train station by the vendors accross the fountain.
Youll find that the vendors sell a lot of of beautiful artefacts but you ask them for the clay fro. Either zim or jhb.

Hope that you find it in durban.
