I was harassed by my wife to make sure I drank copious amounts of fluids although she was sweet to go out and buy me water, crackers and Gatorade. I ended up skipping dinner and trying to recover in bed. Bre joined the group for a delicious Peruvian dinner and Andean music and dancing show. She had lomo saltado, ...
