Today’s the last day we get to get used to the altitude – and it’s certainly been worth the extra days we’ve spent here. It’s easier to get up stairs, we can walk faster, and feel generally better.
With no activities planned for the day, the group was free to wander around Cusco, do a bit of shopping, and generally relax. Some of us went horseriding, others went cycling, some visited the Inca museum and the Cathedral.
Tonight we got our duffle bags for the trek, which can weigh no more than 8kg – and that’s including sleeping bag.
Our bus leaves tomorrow at 06.30am – and then we’ll be on the trail for four days. Our highest point will be 4200 metres. Two of our number have never camped before. This will by no means be an easy trip. But most importantly, we’ve raised over 41k and there’s still money to come in. Thank you all, who have sponsored, supported and encouraged us.
Here’s what we’ll be doing:
We’ll see you when we get back…
