Sorry you never got the experience of hiking in Peru -- it is a beautiful place; however the food did not agree with me at all. I didn't follow the rules and had a Greek Salad a few days after we got there. We were in a 5-star hotel so I figured it would be OK. It wasn't and about a week later I had high altitude sickness, an infection in my stomach, and I was dehydrated. Landed in the clinic, sort of like a hospital where luckily there was a doctor there who could speak fair English. I received 2 or 3 of those bags of sugar water or whatever they put in those bags, some medication, and they checked on me about every 20 minutes. The entire cost was $217 -- imagine what it would have cost in the USA !!! And actually Cigna even reimbursed me of that expenditure.
But you do get LOTS of exercise, so whatever your illness is, it must not keep you from doing a lot of things.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm amazed at my son-in-law, to watch someone by from a life and death situation to the way he is now is just fantastic! He has been a diabetic for years, and yet, somehow when his kidney function kicked back in, he now has no need for his insulin shots. He has been running anywhere from 89 to 120!
Now if he can just rebuild the muscles in his legs he will be a totally new man! He can start his life over. And this has given me the added opportunity of really getting to know him (and him to know me).
