Peru & Machu Picchu
On day 2 we reach Dead Woman's Pass with the help of our four guides as well as porters and cooks. From left to right are: Sergio, Manuel, Erica and Leo who work as independent contractors for our outfitter, Explorandes. The next 2 days will be lots of ups and downs, but not as hard as the first day -- or the last day! No one suffered serious altitude sickness, just tingling hands and tiring easily. Of course, drinking coca tea 3 times a day helped a lot!
