Hi everyone,
Thanks for all the posts - it makes us feel loved, and is good to get news from home!
We got back late last night from Aguas Calientes, after four days on the Inca Trail, and one extra day doing a climb up Mt Putucusi, on the recommendation of Jo and Steve.
The first day of […]

Ola from the Incan capital - Cusco!
Dave and I arrived here on Tuesday, flying direct (well, via Lima) from Santiago, at sea level, or near enough to, to Cusco at 3,200 metres.  We were wondering how the sudden change of altitude would affect us, as there are horror stories about altitude sickness.  We have been […]

When I last left you we were about to go on a walk around the sites of Santiago.  Well, that did not take too long, a few squares with churches and a park on a hill with views of the city and we were done within 90 minutes.  I think that Santiago would be  a […]

Hello all,
Just a quick post, mostly because our hotel has free internet - and also to let you know we got here no dramas.  Yesterday was the longest day I have ever had, about 38 hours long.  Our hotel is really nice for $60 a night, it even has some history which I have forgotten […]

Well the countdown should have started a long time ago but work seems to prevent me from getting to excited. But today is my last day of work so i can get excited now. Also helps that it is the 1st day of the 2nd test v Sri Lanka so i am doubly excited.
