Hello again. I have now met up with my group. They all seem to be very nice and friendly. I also found out that only two of us are doing the actual inca trail hike, me and a Canadian woman, but this should not matter as our tour leader has said that he is going to try and join us up with another small group doing the hike when we get to Cusco. Anyway, Today we head of down soth to the coastal town of Pisco, a 4 hour bus trip on a public bus, which i am sure will be an experience.Then tomorrow our tour really seems to start in earnest with every day pretty much from now until the end jam packed with things to do and keep us entertained. I will try and keep you upto date with my movements, where and when i can find an internet connection. Its good to hear that people are slowly getting better at home even though it still carries on spreading. I really did leave at the right time.
