1.45 AM ha pasado más de una hora y no sé nada de mi maleta, la banda se detiene totalmente y aparentemente el último vuelo de México a la Habana ha concluido su descenso también... Salgo del aeropuerto sin mis cosas y un papel de equipaje perdido que es más una promesa de que harán lo posible por ubicarlo y hacérmelo llegar, pese a todo no estoy desesperada... Abordo el camión que nos traslada al hotel... Hay cierta calma en la madrugada que mantiene mis emociones en paz.
Breathless in Cuzco, Peru literally!
Cuzco will take your breath away – literally and figuratively. At an elevation of 3,400 m (11, 150 ft) above sea level, you will find yourself gasping for breath while walking along its historic narrow, steep cobbled streets. At the same time you can’t help but hold your breath as you find yourself captivated by the magnificent fusion of Incan and Spanish colonial structures that you will see at every turn.
Zane and I did not feel the effects of the high altitude sickness but my rugrat sure did! My son was lethargic, had dizziness, headaches, stomachaches, and vomiting. Luckily, it lasted only one day. Lots of rest, water and eating lighter foods seemed to help.
As great connoisseurs of natural medicine, the Incas used coca leaves to counteract high-altitude sickness. It is common to see locals chewing on coca leaves. Locals usually chew the dried leaves, adding more leaves throughout the day to a wad tucked in their cheeks. It’s the way they’ve done it here for 5,000 years; if you look closely at the paintings in Cuscos cathedral, youll notice that all the saints have a suspicious bulge in one cheek.
I tried the coca tea, which is commonly found in restaurants, hotel lobbies, stores and cafes in Cuzco. It is a greenish/yellow color and is mildly bitter, kind of like a green tea, but with a little more of a plant taste. I am not sure if it helped. Some hotels also carry oxygen tanks to help visitors. Please account for altitude sickness if you plan to visit Peru and give yourself a day or two to adjust especially if you plan to hike to Machu Picchu.
