Yes I know Im bad at updating. If you want to read someone that updates regularly check out my sister's blog.
As for me I am after all travelling and computers arent always plentyful here in Bolivia.
Since the Inca Trail I have done loads of things!
I have visited Lake Titicaca
Were we did 2 nights of homestays.
Joined my new group and gone to the Salt Flats were we spent Xmas.
The hostel on the first night was brilliant and all made of Salt.
But the place we were at on xmas (the 24th) wasn't as fancy but we made it as xmassy as possible.
Visited some silver mines (were I was forced to climb down a rope which I did with as little grace as possible and a lot of healthy fear)
And now enjoying a lovely town called Sucre.
For New Years we are supposed to be in Santa Cruz in Bolivia and supposedly spending New Years in a waterpark (if open)

In Arequipa now. The Inca trail is getting nearer and nearer. On saturday I start the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. And I have been warned that it´s murder!
At the highest point I will be 4,215 metres (13,830 ft) above sea level.
Apparently day 2 is the worst because all you do all day if walk up steps, thousends of them :-(.
Only rainclud on my sky is the fact that I have been sick for over a week and still are. My stomach is shot and I keep feeling nauseas. But spoke to doctor over the phone and on medication now so should hopefully be OK. Will go see the doctor in Cuzco before the trail if still sick but hopfully there will be no need.
Also no shower for 4 days sounds a bit staggeing ;-)
But yeah I am looking forward to it and will enjoy seeing Machu Picchu at the end!
