Day 12. Salkantay Trek day 2. The night was quite cold, moreover the excitement of the upcoming challenging day made sleeping quite difficult. We were supposed to be woken up at 5, but the knock and the offer of the coca tea came at 5:40. It was quite surprising given the difficulty level of today’s hike, but after the breakfast was also delayed and the guides were caught still sleeping at 6:40, we realised who we’ll have to deal with in this trek... later the guide gave us the explanation - one of the cooks had a birthday and they just drank too much... no comments...no surprise he had quite tough times hiking up above 4000m. The hike itself to the Salkantay pass was (common group opinion) much easier than we thought. Yes, dragging the legs up was not a piece of cake and the speed was quite low, but this is how it is, one just has to take it slow and have some coca leaves in the cheek. Over optimistic tempo for 5 seconds normally lead me to stop and catch my breath for half a minute at least. Needless to say, the scenery was amazing... after the pass it started to rain or even to hail, but the most difficult part was already behind and the lunch was soon... at some point everything was covered in dark clouds and only the valley far ahead was magically lighted by the sun, which looked like a promised land. The photo will be in the next post with vertical pics...

São tantos lugares incríveis nas alturas dos Andes. Esse aí fica a 2.000m de altitude e é um dos mais belos cartões postais da cordilheira. #viagens #andes #saojosedemaipo #chile #picture #nature #turism #brazilianguys
#Gucci #red is the #colour there is a perfect neutrality to this look it's preppy and cool with lots of "screw you" geek chic involved with small cross body bag and a kind of far out who cares type attitude attached, I'm a huge fan of red in #fashion and #global #dressing, #saris, #tribal #African cloths #SouthAmerican apparel from the #rainforests of the #Amazon to The #mountain ranges of the #Andes it appears everywhere in so many guises...
