Before our trip to Peru I heard that one person usually gets really bad altitude sickness. Let’s just say that everyone we travelled with now uses the phrase, “Don’t pull a Julie.”

Of course it was me who got sick. So immediately after travelling from Lima to Cusco (a city at a high elevation) I felt short of breath and dizzy. Now fast forward through a group lunch, a tour of churches and some small hikes through Inca ruins to getting back on the bus as the sun is setting.
Let’s just say it’s a good thing I had a large Ziplock bag with me (what, don’t you always carry one with you?)

Once I arrived back at the hotel, I was quickly met by an oxygen tank and immediately started to feel better. Or at least I tricked myself into feeling better when the words “Peruvian hospital” were spoken.

Now I will erase that ugly visual with these pretty ones from Anne Marissa. I really want the map of Peru featured above. P.S. I promise the rest of my Peru stories aren’t as gross.
