    ... up. He gave me breakfast and a hot tea and then he told me there was a bed ready so I could go to sleep for a bit, it was the nicest sleep I was so happy to be in bed. I slept until 11.30. I woke up to find that the others I had met in Salta had arrived. A couple from England, a guy from Germany and a girl from Australia. We decided to go off and do a trek. The German Aussie and I. We got a bus and then got dropped off. We started walking and headed ...

    ... water and they recommended we get some cocoa leaves to help with altitude, as we would be going as high as 3000m. We then had a lesson on how to use these, namely by breaking the stalk off, stacking about 10-20 leaves on top of each other and then packing them into a tight bunch/ball, before stuffing that at the back of your mouth, wedged between your gums and your teeth.
