X. High & dry

December 2, 2018

Hello again dear reader!We do hope you've been enjoying reading about our adventures because we are definitely having a great time sharing it with you. This week was particularly exhausting for us due to the high altitudes we've been passing through, which have been causing our bodies some distress adjusting to the lower oxygen pressure. Altitude sickness didn't actually affect us very hard as some stories we've heard or people we've seen, but just enough to make us feel as if we had run a marathon when in fact we walked some 5 minutes with our backpacks on (which btw weight between 19kg to 23kg each).
