The "Cure" foraltitude in Peru

All very good points. I'll need to check re altitude - the highest I've been at was skiing around 4000m, sleeping below 3000m. Unfortunately it's hard to know ahead of time who might be affected by altitude sickness.

Re heat and crowds in the US SW, as per my email above my busy season at work is Oct-May so it will be hard to travel for several weeks during that period. Maybe early June or mid-Sep. Or wait until I change jobs or something.

In Peru they serve "tea" made with leaves of the COCA tree, which are also the source of cocaine - the tea has only a very small dose.

It's sort of interesting to be sipping this "cocaine' tea all day - but it doesn't help much  

Love those Peruvian colors !!
