Sun 7/2 : Cusco, Peru

First, I want to give a big Happy Birthday shout out to Cecilia... sorry I can't be there with you, but I will get you lots of presents- don't worry! Then we will celebrate when I see you in California... can't wait to go diving and camping with you!

Well- we leave for the Salkantay trek and Machu Picchu tomorrow at 4:30 am (I know, what's up with these early mornings) and I won't be able to post for the next 5 days until we get back. We got here about 1pm and all we have been doing is resting. I am really excited about the trek... we have been trying to acclimate to altitude and its been pretty rough.. but we are making it. Drinking lots of water and coca tea. We met our guides Ceasar and Rodriquez (I think I got that right) and we will be with them, 4 others in our group- 10 total, and in addition will have 2 guys on horses, 4 porters and 1 chef. This should be an amazing trek and can't wait to post pictures when I return.

After Machu Picchu, we are back in Cusco for 2 days before heading to Iquitos- the Amazon Rain Forest. Stay tuned.
