I HAVE 10 DAYS LEFT;-(
I can't describe how much of a weight that is on my heart. One of my best friends, Nina, takes off tomorrow to return to wisconsin. I honestly don't even want to attempt going to the airport. The good part is that I will see her about a week later in one of holly's concerts in Wisconsin. They bad news is that Aurelie won't. This friendship that has grown throughout the corners of Peru is going to be ripped apart tomorrow. Aurelie live in Belgium. But it feels like I have known her my entire life. Her and nina combined probably know more about me than anyone in the entire world. An exchange just does that to you.
I'm not ready for tomorrow.
As for the trip with Camille. It was stunning. From late night card games in freezing hostels, to climbing Waynapicchu (a mountain in Machu Picchu), to exploring the markets and there treasures. I felt like a traveller from National planet with my Lonely Planet in hand, my hiking backpack strapped tight, and speaking spanish with the locals (and my sister). It was a great time for me to have with her. I have found out how much closer I have become with her even despite being so far away. Once a traveller, always a traveller. ;-) Here's a few more photos.
