    ... had dropped to just ten degrees. Added to that it starts to rain on and off and I only have one set of warm clothing which I don't want to get wet. This is not what I signed up for! Spent the day blogging and researching my next move. Weather looked okay for the following day so I decided to do a trip to Samaipata.
