We almost didn't make it! On Sunday our great Liverpudlian friend Sean flew into Buenos Aires, and we sat on the roof of the hostel drinking litre bottles of beer. I booked a taxi for half 5 the next morning (our flight was at 7), and we both set our alarms for 5. The next thing I know the phone in my room is ringing, and reception is telling me that there's a taxi waiting for us. Shît attack! I ran upstairs, woke Cailín up, ran downstairs and just threw on whatever was sitting about, and dumped the rest into my rucksack. After a hurried goodbye to Sean, I came out, and when there was still no sign of Cailín after 2 minutes, I went back up to find her sleeping again! After a swift verbal boot in the arse, we ended up checking in at 6:35, ran through the airport, through immigration and walked onto the plane. Close one.

We were hoping to stay in Argentina for another few days, and grab the boat over to Uraguay to stay over night, but alas it wasn't to be. We could put out flight back, but it was going to be a minimum of 4 days, and our Machu Pichu trek is already booked for the 23rd. We could've made it, but we need at least 3 days in Cusco to acclimatise to the high altitude. Or so we've been told, and one thing you learn early is to listen to other travellers.

The flight to Lima was 4 and a half hours which I spent sleeping beside this beautiful dark skinned Argentine girl. Off the plane in Lima airport, straight to the LAN Peru desk and bought 2 tickets for Cusco. We grabbed something to eat wand walked straight onto the plane. It was that simple. On the flight they were showing 'just for laughs' and there were a few sketches from Belfast in it which was a bit weird. I seen a girl I used to work with and there was this little boy scout with an Ulster badge sewn onto his arm. We're flying into the middle of the Andies and I'm watching people I know on TV!
