    ... cheek go numb.

  • We stopped on the way to take pictures of the local wild life.
  • We also stopped at a view point at 4910 m above sea level. I felt really dizzy and it was difficult to breath.
  • The bus arrived in Chivay that afternoon. Vale went with the others to the hot springs. I stayed at the hostel and rested as I was feeling really nauseous from the altitude.
