A wee taste

Dear readers. I know that one of the greatest faults of this blog is the lack of pictures. Well, my good friend, Nicolaine, (that´s her on the right there,) just posted some pictures to facebook. So here's the smallest of tastes of the picture storm that is going to overtake this blog once I am back in the states (in less than a week!!!).
We were all velcroed, strapped, and clipped into our safety gear for our bike road down 'Death Road'. Yes, I felt silly, but I also felt badass.

Slight downfall of our gear: you it is slightly difficult to tell who is who. Can you spot me here?

This was in Cusco. Our hostel was on a hill. In a city of very high altitude. That picture is a pretty apt visual description of my experience in that city, except for the hippie pants. I have still not purchased a pair. Though I have thought about it-- great pajama pants.
More to come soon.

I was looking for the jumping person in Chacos, but didn't see any.

Aaah I was tricky and put socks on. Yes, I just admitted on this public space that I wore socks with sandals. What can I say? You've got to do what you've got to do, and it was FREEZING at the top of Death Road.

I'll give you a hint, I was wearing the ubiquitous red fleece under my safety vest.
