Sooooo someone wanted to get regular food after conquering Machu Picchu. The food so far has been decent. For some reason I just wanted a burger. So we stopped at Bembos. Yeah. I should have gotten pizza because the ‘beef’ burger was weirdly mushy in a way that told me I was not eating beef...I blame myself for this meal.
we walked around the flea market shop area. Basically every stall has the exact same thing so it was hard to pick up souvenirs. I hate just picking up junk.
We ended up grabbing a coffee and just hanging out in WiFi for awhile. It was really nice. The coffee was good. The music was soothing and no one was there. Perrrfect! We were heading to the train soon.
it seemed like such a long day. Machu Picchu. Wandering. Packing. Train. Getting off. Finding SAM travel. A couple hours drive to Cusco. In the van I started to feel nausea from the car ride... or the food...
we finally made it to Yawar Inca which was the nicest hotel we have stayed in and it also was the fastest stay. :( Basically we were there to sleep then up again at 4am...
we had not eaten since Bembos... It was kind of late to have dinner but we went to La Quinta anyway. It kind of was a shady walk down the street and over a block. Some guy started talking to us and following us. It was weird. I think he was trying to take us somewhere. No thank you.
There was so many good sounding options on this menu but... since I wasn’t feeling well I opted for the kids chicken nuggets and fries. Lol
Anyway, we don’t need to get into details but I was sickity sick. It just got worse and worse. We woke up early and was at the airport. I could barely keep my eyes open. I slept until we boarded the plane and just before the plane started its ascend I felt like I was going to throw up. I resigned myself to doing it in my cap. I felt bad for the guy sitting next to me. He probably thought I drank too much Chicha the night before. I made it to Casa Arequipa without getting sick on myself or anyone else. It was a win. I’m underplaying it a little. It was a bit serious. I’ve never felt so sick. It was a combination of weird food and dehydration. Maybe some altitude issues. No bueno. Make sure to take care of yourselves!
