Another day, another lake

I just woke up at my lovely $3/night hotel and had a breakfast that also cost $3. Not an expensive country, this Peru. I´ve had to delay my departure for the mountains because the agency we finally settled on couldn´t get everything ready at 6 pm last night--not surprisingly. So today the Israeli guy and I are going to do another acclimatization hike up to another mountain lake at 3800 meters. We depart for the real thing tomorrow morning at 5 am. Groan. The altitude sickness medication is making my fingers tingle. It also causes excessive urination and impotence. I saw an Asian lady in the computer room at my hotel. Unfortunately she wasn´t Japanese, but she might join our hike, possibly lowering costs, which is even more exciting.
