Machu Picchu—here we come

We’re heading to Machu Picchu tomorrow—walking. Oh, we get a ride part of the way, and some train and such, but we’ll trek 28 kilometres uphill over the next three days. Some of our group will be doing 40+ kilometres.

There will be no electricity, no running water, no toilets. But we will have a guide, porters and cooks. Our entourage will have horses too. Wish us luck. I’ll be back Thursday my time—I hope—with some good news of this latest big adventure—and lots of pictures. Stay tuned.

    It’s coincidental that I recommended visiting Machu Picchu. I watched a documentary film last night and noticed today from your blog that you and PJ were in Peru.

    It’s a fascinating story and an engineering wonder.I love this type of stuff.

      I’m not at all surprised you recommended Michu Picchu the day before we start the trek. We do think the same way. 🙂

    Good luck Peggy. Twenty-eight kilometres, mostly uphill and trekking is a long way but I’m sure you and Poor John will accomplish it with your usual aplomb. Can’t wait to see the photos.

    Cheers

      Thanks Graeme. I’ve already told Poor John and the guide that I’ll be going at Peggy-speed, which is probably not far off Chiyo-speed. 🙂 Give the Devil Dog a pat from us.
