through the mountians to Maccupiccu, Peru

Last time i was working at the Missionshospital in Curahuasi and as i was thinking what to do next, i thought well, why not walk to Maccupiccu.

From Curahuasi thats about 50km as the crow flighs with a certian ammount of 5000 and 6000+ mountians inbetween, no roads and deep canyons. No worries then, i got a topo map from the military, a weeks ammount of food, all gear and off i go.

First stop after a day and a half was at Inca ruins names Couquekirauw (or quite simular namewise) at an too easy 3100m between a rigde 1000m higher (over where i went after) and a riverbed 1500m lower (from where i climbed) .

So as you see, a fair bit of climbing was involved. The site was just discovered a couple years ago, and as i read somewhere in a clever book a inca trail lead directly from the main plaza propably all the way to maccupiccu.

Well, i was there to figure it out. So off i go some crickey path, which was in the next couple days sometimes just jungle, sometimes stonesteps over 4000+ passes, sometimes a valleywalkway.

Not often to be honest, and now i know why the incaempire got a bit small ... why in the world the make their roads always over highest possible pass? and always following afterwards in the deepest possible valley ? you gonna get footlame after a some time.

Anyway, i made every day 2000m in height, camped inbetween somewhere, saw shitloads of ruins on the way, crossed 4700m Passes, dragged my 20kg+ Backpack along and well, made it after 5days and 120km to maccupiccu.

Not completly actually, but till the ticketgate. There i figued that after declearing it one of the new 7 world wonders they raised the (alreay very high) admissionprice at about the double and not even my faked studentcard they wanted to accept. THANK YOU Mr. Bernard Weber, ARSCH !

Well Well, thats about from me, no worries altogether

Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was

wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have

no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with

experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
