Getting very excited about returning to this place tomorrow- oh Baler how I've missed you!!! When I first came to the Philippines many months ago, Manila was a lonely, depressing and unexciting experience. I remember thinking to myself on the bus to Baler what a huge mistake I had made to do this whole solo trip, and that if nothing else, at least my stubborness would carry me through.
Boy was I wrong. As soon as I got to Baler I made a thousand friends. Everybody was instantly welcoming, and I got to truly experience how friendly the Filipino people are. And now? I'm back here, in the Philippines, living here. Well at least for a while, let's just go with the flow hey?
65.7 km and 3 days of hiking the Salkantay trek later, we are finally at the foot of Machu Picchu. Tomorrow will be the big day where we finally hike up to Machu Picchu at sunrise.
