Lima + Miraflores
[SEPT 2nd - 15th, 2010]
LAX to LIM
Before flying out I was required to get my shots updated before leaving the country. As I was also volunteering during my trip it was necessary. I took 6 shots in two months, one of which was the most painful shot I had. On the bright side with these shots I don't have to get vaccinated until 10 or 15 years later. Other preparations includes camping gear for the trek. Bought a new sleeping bag, new air pad to sleep on, new trekking shoes, and a couple more of the little things to take with me- all of which would help me survive the 4 day & 3 nights trek with no shower until the final day.
Arrival to LIMA, PERU
We took our first day easy because of the elevation. We knew this may or may not cause drowsiness. Thankfully I was not nor was my friend.
