Our sincere apologies for the blog blackout, I´m sure you´re all really pissed off, but the internet went down in the whole of Huaraz for a few days. We have been action men so bare with me as I recall what has happened, albeit after our two days of acclimatisation in which we did nothing but sleep and feel insane in the membrane. It was like being a fat kid in a candy store, but the fat kid is so fat and lacking in energy that he can´t gorge on the candies within - twas a tad frustrating but it had to be done otherwise any other activity is impossible and leaves you altitude sickness.
Monterrey - Tues
This day we booked up everything for our actionman adventure turbo big-lad week in the mountains, and so decided that we should treat ourselves to a relaxing trip to the thermal bathes down the road in a small village called Monterrey
Lago Llaca - Wed
as mentioned, we had sorted out this day´s activities with the hostel owner, Tito, and were going with a friendly swiss couple to Lago Llaca for a short one-day hike to boost our acclimatisation for this friday´s bitchin´ four day hike. Up at 7am (boooo) we caught a taxi for around 2 hours along some pretty horrendous spine-shattering roads (I think that´s why all peruvian taxi drivers are short) and up to a glaciated valled between two enormous snow-capped mountains - needless to say the views on the way up were glorious
Again, we both hope all is well and welcome anecdotal evidence of your continued existence.
