I very nearly didn't go to salsa today. I am scheduled as the first client of the day, so it wasn't like I could call in in cancel. Which was good. Going out and dancing... helped. It wasn't quite as much fun, I wasn't as relaxed as I usually am but it did still help. It got me out of the apartment.

We leave for our Amazon trip this evening so we thought today we'd visit one of the local parks and relax with a beer. We invited Rachel along (the girl from our walking tour in cusco) and went 5 stops on the bus until we reached the park.
