... a single soul along the trek (other than the odd local villagers here and there along the way). It was like we had the whole mountain to ourselves (something which I know you don't experience on the Inca Trail, given how busy the trek is). The effects of the altitude kept us quite short of breath throughout most of the trek, especially on Day 2 in our effort to conquer the steep ascend to our first and second pass. We also suffered mild head aches, and I had a little blood nose ...

... ancient Incan people and I could barely get up that mountain once. I have no idea how they went up there all day every day, even caring huge boulders to build their cities. I'm supposed to be in my physical prime and I was about one more flight of stairs away from passing out.

... a mint infused lemonade - absolutely delicious!).

During lunch everyone was given a chance to make a formal introduction and give a tidbit about ourselves. Our group was from all over the four corners of the United States and everywhere in between and it was nice to meet everyone and make new friends.

After lunch was over we were given a demonstration of traditional weaving by the women who work at the Center. We were given a thorough explanation of the process which ...

... Or a bit fey, like the boy hunter that hovers as the edge of the story in The Borrowers, or Dickon in The Secret Garden, Anne of Green Gables with her swift and whimsical decisions. My favorite scenes in Jane Austin’s works or the myriad of other stories where women found themselves in a position somehow a bit contrary to the tightly woven situations, places where these characters got to burst out with the truth of the ...
