Well all my famiy & friends I have finally arrived, after a long journey.
Anyone thinking of going on a long journey with Iberia dont do it to yourself. Although I might add I did have quite a good seat considering I was told there was possibly no seats.So I was a very lucky girl. Must admit when I was at Heathrow and had gone for the first part of journey to Iberia, was wondering if I should have gone Miami way. But I possibly wouldnt have been here yet.
Spent last night in Lima, take your life in your hands on the roads there. Didnt sleep to good but no problem as I have a couple of days to relax. Amazing that its by the sea never imagined Peru by the sea, not quite like ours though. it is the pacific, but you no how fussy us westerners are.
When to Lima airport at 7.30 am this morn they had me on the 8.30 flight to Cusco, which is just as well Jess said as she doesnt think they will be flying pm.
Those of you that have flown to South Island NZ will get the idea of what you see when you fly in Mountains all around into a valley below.Not quite like NZ here though little poorer.It has rained a little since I arrived & unfortunately Machu Pichu is closed for at least a month, hopefully open before I leave. Because of all the flooding there is a lot ruined and houses washed away which I will see later. Apparently 2 tourists got killed in the floods and a local Tour guide, so all people are a little sad at the moment. I havent felt the altitude yet but apparently it takes a couple of days to kick in, so its a good idea to drink coke tea yes its as it sounds more you drink the better you feel. Reckon its because you will be high as a kite.
Have meet Jess who is 23 and really lovely girl she is my point of contact & is about to tun up to show me around. I can here a festival going on as I sit here, great atmosphere and I am going to be good so dont worry guys. They love those little fire crackers you can keep hearing them going off.
My room is my home for the next 6 weeks which is okay its not the hilton and it feels like you are in the middle of the street but comfy. The biggest noise has just gone of with about 50 firecrackers. how can thay afford them !!
I cant get my computor working for internet but will keep at it, problem is if I havent got it doubt if you will get pictures.
It is five hours behind you here so it will be late in your day when I add to this.
I worried I might loose what I have written so I am going to sign off for now and will try to add more later.
Thanks for your support everyone and will try and give you as much info as possible. xx
