... so happy to see they had made it. While I was on the horse I remember thinking how hard this would've even if I wasn't ill. I felt so proud of them all, especially Laura who struggled though it all at the back of the line and pushed through it all. I hear the other guys cheered her to the top of the pass as she even shed a tear or two, it's certainly a massive achievement. My only regret is I wasn't well enough to do it with them.

... of the group except Hannah are doing the Lares Trek, Hannah was able to get onto the Inca Trek (which is longer and hikes right into Machu Picchu on the last day). We will have a new guide taking us on the trek, his name is Sergio or Gato (translates to Cat) apparently it has to do with the colour of his eyes.

They also had a great water irrigation system working but when the Spanish invaded they destroyed it so that the important Incan people would be forced to leave the high grounds and become workers for the Spanish down on the low lands. After that we ...
... our train to Agua Callientes, the town closest to Machu Picchu. Our first class train ride got us in to Aguas Callientes early afternoon and some of us made a b-line straight to the hot springs, which were kind of disappointing after the beautiful springs at Colca, but desperately needed all the same. On our way back to the hotel we made a slight detour into a happy hour bar. Slight panic when I had less than 5 mins to shower and change for dinner I was just so happy ...
