Today we needed stamina, 16km to the next campsite! It started off up hill and then after that it was all down hill. Going down hill on slippy steps was nearly as bad as going up hill. You had to concentrate where you planted your feet as they where big steep steps. On the way down we visited some more inca sites and the view of the valley was brilliant, until the mist came in and visability became poor. With our ponchos on (mine was yellow and sophies orange) we must have looked funny, we started walking a bit quiker as we had had enough of the rain. We arrived for lunch a bit early so we waited for the others to have lunch. We had soup again and chinese style rice with chicken! Its amazing how they cook it in the middle of nowhere. The afternoon session wasn't too bad, land was pretty flat. That night for tea the chefs had cooked us a cake with decorations on. That lightened the spirits and with Machu Picchu in the morning the wet tent and wet sleeping bag wasn't as bad as it should have been. M x
