    Some precisions:
    - guascas are not an herb from the rainforest areas of Colombia. It grows in temperate areas, and is mainly found in the region of Cundinamarca around Bogotá which sits above 2000m of altitude.
    - this herb is not called ajiaco. Ajiaco is a dish.
    - this dish called Ajiaco always contains chicken, hence no need to call it "chicken ajiaco". it is simply called "ajiaco", at least in Colombia.
