Thanks for taking time to post that. Very kind of you. I had no idea about most of that.I have actually spoken with Altitude Sickness scientists who work at NASA with the astronaut programmes. People I know have stayed in towns for a while to get acclimatised. I have an almost visceral connection with Peru. Two recurring dreams have been with me, one since before I even went to school. When I first wanted to go you had no option but to trek everywhere,and I was a long time recovering from a broken back, then the Shining Path guerillas were around. Then when I had the time I didn't have the money, and vice versa. Oddly enough at Machu Picchu it's not so much the ruins that give me a headrush just looking at a photo, but the mountain you see rising above it, Huayna Picchu. How I would love to go to the Bolivian structures. You have got me thinking again...Hmmm..When a work friend went on a wonderful tour of the region I asked him to bring me back one of the ladies bowler hats. He did, from the highest hill station. Still has the tag. I call it my Thinking Cap and perch it on my head when I have an important decision to make.
If you have been then I am so jealous ! I would love to wander around Puma Punku.Puma Door...Doorway to where ???????
