The lavender oil dripped on my bare chest

MARK: Her sweet perfume filled the darkened room.  Suddenly the door creaked open.  She walked around the bed and pulled back the cover.  He lay there naked, except for his fake CK underpants, clean on that morning (thank God). What was going to happen next?  His heart began to race.  “Turn over” she whispered, as she moved towards him, a smile in her eyes.

A whiff of cheap rose scent engulfed the room

Well that got you reading!

But it did happen and much much more.  It was part of our serious preparation you know for the Inca Trail, which at time of writing is less than 48 hours away.

I have had a really painful arm and shoulder since I did the abseil/canyoning in Ecuador nearly three weeks ago.  So what better excuse to have a full body massage – for my weary muscles (training hurts) and of course my frozen right shoulder.  Got to say it was the best massage I have ever had, here in Cusco…. And no, there were no extras just in case you were wondering!

We have had an amazing week in Peru.  Scaling the heights of 5,000m, seeing the 4,000m Colca Canyon (from above), spotting Condors….. and a couple of walks at altitude in preparation for one of the highlights of our Round the World Trip – the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

So not many words – instead a few photographs.  Promise to report back in about a week with news of our Inca adventure.

    Nice picture of an eared dove. You are ahead of me in seeing a condor, a bird that is certainly on my wanted list!

    I was already for ‘ 50 shades of Bailey’ after that intro….. Oh well. Good luck to both of you with the big climb of Macchu Piccu. My nephew did this and said it was OK really, not a problem (he’s a Royal Marine!) I have no doubt you will succeed. Love PX

    You will love the Inca trail. After all the other tough things you have done I don’t think you will find this too arduous. Camping at the top of the Andes and watching the sun rise, and also watching the sun come up at Macchu Picchu without any other tourists around was an experience of a lifetime. Hope you find it the same. Enjoy.
