The hospitality was wonderful here; after we'd been ripped off (sad to admit) by taxi drivers who stole our information from the real don carlos shuttle and claimed to be them (DC offers a shuttle from the airport to hotel for a reasonable price), the manager actually took that amount of money off of our bill since he felt bad for us and for some reason even seemed to give us a discount on the stay. I was not expecting such great customer service! The hotel room was clean and the breakfast (free) was just fine. I'd definitely stay here again.

... out and fatigue sets in, your will to achieve will prevail." Well, a strong will was very much needed for the 12-14km because it was HELL. It was steep, uphill, high (near 3000m at this point) AND it started raining. At 11:30am, we were at the 13 km mark. We quickly put on ponchos over our bags and tired bodies, and trekked on.
The next kilmeter took nearly 40 minutes. The saving grace- besides having my wonderful mom as a companion- ...
... to iron my uniform but I was still wet from the shower and barefoot. I grabbed the iron and the force of the shock up my arm was so strong that I couldn't let it go. Mi mama came running up the stairs into the drying room (in our roof) when she heard my screams and had to knock it out of my hand. The same happened in the shower at a friend's place - much to my embarrassment!
We showered then slept like babies.
