The room is beautiful, it's a corner room on the 2nd floor with a beautiful view of the roaring river out two extra large windows.

Mike's motivation was to listen to his heart beat and keep a steady rhythm until he reached his next checkpoint, then take a very short break. Surprisingly, the altitude was causing him to be short of breath as expected but wasn't holding him back like he was worried about in Cusco. ...
