Hello from Lake Titicaca

I’m in Cusco right now. Tomorrow we’ll be starting our weeklong trek to Salkantay and Machu Picchu. Altitude sickness is no joke. Having a wonderful time despite it.

  1. Had my first taste of altitude sickness in Cusco. It improved as I went down to Machu Picchu, about 3,000 feet less in altitude. Take care. It can be dangerous. Have a great trek.

    • We started at Lake Titicaca which is much higher than Cusco. The sickness comes and goes. I feel better now, but I’m a bit worried about when we go up to Salkantay, which will be our highest elevation. I’m prepared with meds.

    • I recovered after a few days. I had an incredible experience. It’ll be hard to top this trip.

      Looking forward to catching up on blogs and seeing what you’ve been doing in Italy.
