Good Friday : I havent done much this week just packing & getting ready to leave Cusco & Peru.
In the morning I am off to Machu Pichu for two days, hopefully, so finally I have made it. Seems strange after years off thinking about coming here I am actually going to see something I only ever dreamed of. Bit like when I saw Sydney Opera house. After that I will be ready to leave Cusco.
Things I will miss ; being treated like I was Mother Teresa by the kids, my friends & the great times we have (not that you are not great at home ), the sun when its out,Smelling the barbacues cooking on the street corners (not that I eat from them) cheap taxis. Fact that everything is open all night. Plus Ashleigh who insists I mention her seperately.!!
Things I wont miss: Smell of pee in the streets in the morning, holes in the pavements, not being able to drink tap water, cleaning my teeth with bottled water, street traders, stray dogs, putting toilet paper in the bin. Torrents of rain flooding my street, eating jam for breakfast, dodgy buses. Meat on sale along the road, with flies on. Im almost a vegetarian now. Also not being able to breath especially when walking all the hills. Cusco is all hills. But even all of that I have had a great time. Would reccomend it.
Cant think of anything else so will leave you now to ponder on my next adventures. Hope to update Sunday night before I leave for Bolvia. If not will update when ever I can find internet, as I have sold my computor, too heavy to travel with As have exchanged my travel case for a backpack xx
