The lost city

It takes some effort to get here today so it’s not surprising the Spanish never found this Incan city. I try to imagine what the journey must have been like for the handful of people who stumbled across this magnificent place. Machu Picchu, Peru

Bienvenido a Colombia!

After one continuous party starting in Panama City, I’m finally on the road again.

Hanuman temple

one of many attractions in Karol Bagh is the Hanuman temple.

Leaving the Altiplano

After months of climbing some of the highest peaks in the Americas and being in a permanent state of asphyxia I’m exiting southern Bolivia and descending some 8,000 feet to the Atacama desert in Chile. Bolivia/Chile Frontera

Our hosts prepare us a meal of maggie noodle casserole, a staple in the Himalayas. Pang, Ladakh, India
