I´m sure it was getting a bit tedious just reading a page of text so I´ve now managed to upload a few of my photos from the past week.
It looks like I´ve managed to avoid getting altitude sickness up here, which I´m very relieved about. The only real effects I´m getting are a feeling of having fallen asleep in a room with an industrial strength dehumidifier. My eyes are dry and stinging, my lips are cracked and I´m constantly thirsty. Compared to what I could have been dealing with, I´ve got off very lightly!
The temperature up here is crazy. I spent part of the afternoon sunbathing in the hotel gardens but as soon as the sun disappeared behind the building it became FREEZING and I had to rush inside, throw a load of layers on and put the heater on full blast. Funny place.
I´m taking the advice to take things very slowly in Cusco for the first few days and am enjoying the opportunity to relax, read and people watch. At the moment I´m reading ´Love in the time of Cholera´ for the South American theme. How very civilised. I haven´t even had a drink
since I left Leeds over a week ago.
Hope you like the piccies x
