It only took 21h to get from Lima to Cusco. Quicker than expected but the extra speed caused almost everybody to be travel sick. A very unpleasant journey for all. We are now in the hostel at Cusco and everybody is feeling a lot better. The bad news is that there is a national stike starting tomorrow. This means we have to leave for the projects at 3.30am tomorrow or we`re stuck here for 3 days. Anyway everybody is up for it and are in high spirits, if the noise outside is anything to go by. Neither of the projects have internet and Ocongate doesn't even have electricity. So don't expect to hear anything for about a week. Be in touch again soon

Hi Anna,great to hear that you all arrived in one piece, albeit a bit shook up after the bus ride.
Good job you did not take the hair straighteners as Ocongate will be a let down!
Hope all of you are in good spirits & enjoy all the adventures that are in front of you.

Shame you didn't have the Kwells, but perhaps the pressure bands worked (NOT!). Alistair flew out of jungle early to get to Cusco before strike. He's very keen to meet up!! Adam and Co. also all heading north from Copacabana, Lake Titicaca, Puno and La Paz. Give Ali a big hug from me or how's about a big sloppy kiss. lol xx xx
