At the hot springs. They are located at 11,000 feet and have several different pools to soak in.

This picture does not do it justice, but the clouds cleared just before dark and revealed a huge volcanic mountain just off in the distance. It was covered in ice. It was hard to believe that I was in the tropics on the equator and there could be such a sight in front of me. Especially since I was bathing in the hot water

Up to the moment

Here I am holed up in the little mountain town of Palpallacta waiting for the rain to stop. It is about 50 degrees outside so it is not warm either.
It is giving me a chance to update my blog and figure out where to go from here. Notice I have my tires in my room with me. Don't want to lose these babies

That is so cool to attach the map. Sometimes, I don't even know where I am.
The volcano out my window is the one shown on the map there,
And just down the road is where the bridgge is out I am guessing.
Thanks for posting that

It means you should have consumed enough Pisco Sours to make those girls look good enough for a ménage à trois. That would release the heat.

Cool shot of your GPS at the equator.

There is not enough pisco in Pisco for that to happen
Either that or I am losing my touch.
I am in this little town called Chugchilan
There are 3 places to stay here
I checked out all three.
The first was really nice
The second one had a group of mostly girls traveling around in a hippy bus
The third one had only girls.
Which one did I pick?
The first one
It is the nicest one
And I am an idiot

Right now I am sipping on some good sipping tequila, I have got a fire going because it's really cold way up here in the Andes and I am wondering what excuse I can make for leaving here and making my way over to one of those other places
Because honestly, this tequila is really not THAT good and there are other ways to keep warm.
I am an idiot
