Day 738: Weightless again after being in the clouds

Day 738

Yesterday, I arrived back in Lima after a few days of holiday in Cusco.  I was able to see the famed ruins of Machupicchu, which was fantastic!  It wasn’t all pleasure though.  The high altitude in Cusco (3310 meters) and surrounding sites (from 2200 meters up to 3800 meters) caused me some headaches and dizziness (classic symptoms of altitude sickness), but the effects were reduced toward the end of my 5-day stay there.  I also had a cold while I was there.  However, the scenery was worth it.

All that climbing up and down stairs and terraces at the many sites in the thin air were also workouts in themselves.

I was supposed to fly home today, but the client here asked me to stay for another week.  I had wanted to go to the gym, but couldn’t find the lock I use for the gym lockers among my newly-unpacked luggage, so I opted to do another bodyweight workout inside my hotel room.
