Altitude sickness? Quien dijo miedo!

Golden inca statue in Cusco

Elevation kicked my butt for three days and that trek to the Inca site via the pass at 14,800 feet was the hardest thing I've done. Got up at 4 am to make sunrise at Machu Picchu on solstice.

So sore I could hardly get up and down stairs.

We went to Mama Africa in the main square to dance anyway and danced all night til 4 am. Ending it with a few Cusco locals who were fun. I love how everyone dances and hoots and nearly dances with everyone at the same time.

Also found Julio of Chile, who broke out old school break dance with me.

We were up 24 hours after altitude sickness and trekking.
