Peru - Day #1
What a long trip! 35h from New York to Huaraz. I arrived at 6am to Huaraz (3100m). I had a nap to 10ish then go for a bike ride to get some altitude. I turn back when I reached 3500m. Then go back to my hotel and rest. Acclimatization process starts by drinking lots of water. So I drink about 8L ... Today I go to the acclimatization trek (2days). I will sleep tonight at 4600m. The altitude gain is kind of fast, so I expect that it will hit pretty hard my body and might even be a little sick tonight. Oh well ... I will drink a lot, relax (breath slowly) and enjoy the bold landscape.
