this "paint" is actually crushed up beetle bugs. They use this to dye their fabrics and can make different colors by mixing it with different things such as lemon juice which produces a mustard yellow color
this face kills me, Chino is in the blue, he was one of our guides (in training)
Our first lunch break, our porters would go ahead of us and set up our camps and cook our meals. It was pretty luxurious for camping
Enrique, our awesome guide
There are 5 dogs to every one person in Peru, most of them are wild and don't have any kind of vaccinations. I wanted to pet all the cute, cleaner looking dogs but didn't dare!
Our first camp, our porters would clap for us as we came into camp and hand us drinks. It was pretty embarrassing actually, considering all we carried was a day pack and they packed everything for us including real silverware and chairs for our meals.
happy to have survived day 1 and getting equally nervous for day 2
Jeff completely surprised me and had this whole thing set up with our guide Enrique before we even left on the trail. How lucky am I?! What an amazing and memorable birthday, I will never forget it!
right after the cake got smashed in my face, I should have known better than to fall for that!
the cake both looked and tasted amazing
our chef Marco
