Arrived in Cusco yesterday afternoon and altitude sickness hit the moment i stepped of the plane.  It felt like i was walking in slow motion for most of the day.  Symptoms were harsh, shortness of breath, slightly blurred vision, weakness, head felt like it would burst. Kept waking up through the night from breathing difficulties. The walking around after arrival may not have been the best thing to do, however i did make some new friends.  I drank loads of coca tea after i returned to Tika Wasi, a bowl of quinoa vegetable soup in the evening and stayed in my room. This morning symptoms subsided, still a slight headache.  I think i might be ready for a walk around the area later.   I check in to South American Explorers today.  Cheers for now..
