    Getting ready!

    June 12, 2017 in Peru ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We arrived Cuzco in the early morning, I took a cab with Kai to town and checked into my hostel. They were really nice letting me have breakfast today since I will miss it tomorrow. Later on I went to the company I booked the trail with, bought some Coca leaves against the symptoms of altitude sickness and found a solution for my blister. They do not have Compeed or other blister bands here and I ran out of mine. That would be a big business up here I think with all those trails you can do and I am for sure not the only one getting blisters all the time no matter how worn the shoes are.
    There is a lot going on in Cuzco in June, there is a parade with people in traditional costums and dancing to live music, all so colorful. Otherwise I visited the market and strolled around the city, I am already looking forward spending some more time here after my 5 days hike to Macchu Picchu. We had a meeting at 5pm, so I met Adriana and Earl, brothers and sisters from the US and my walking buddies for the next days! So looking forward to that!
