Carlin and I went down to Winchester to visit Emma & Yoshi and together we popped over to Stonehenge. It wasn't a very spiritual experience because it was cold and a group of Korean tourists were being annoyingly attention-seeking, but as always, it was lovely to catch up C, E&Y and I took loads of photos.

The manager from CREES (the organisation I did voluntary work for) also came to the airport and helped me get on the 7.35am flight so everything worked out fine. I'm now sta...
Finally made it to Machu Picchu, the whole reason for this trip in the first place, but now I'm here, it seems a bit of an anti-climax. I had such a great time in Cusco, and in the jungle that I feel they've eclipsed the whole Machu Picchu experience. Plus I spent the whole train journey reading Harry Potter in a desperate attempt to finish it before anyone spoiled the ending for me (Rosey!). I also found myself taking more of an interest in the flora and faun...
