6.14.10: Trek to Machu Picchu

3rd day of trekking

Today was tough. Still stick from last night, I now have to stick to a strict diet: no milk, no meat, no fat, no fun. Only fruits, veggies, bread. Sucks. As everyone ate a delicious breakfast omelette, I ate fruit. Fruit is not a meal, it is a side dish. Meaning that it should come on the side of SOMETHING!

This day sucked. It was the easiest of all the days but it still sucked. Any movement was too much for me and my fragile stomache. The hiking was easy, thank god, cause I was running on empty. Only about 4 hours of hiking til we got to Augas Calientes (the small town at the base of Machu Picchu).

I took a nap when we got there, watched ¨Pearl Harbor¨in spanish (turns out, its not great in any language) ate some soup and passed out again. Didnt want to over exert myself cause the next day was Machu Picchu...
