Machu Picchu, I’m Coming…

This (entirely fictional!) post, a narrative of the first stages of a tour to ‘The Lost City of the Incas’ is written in response to the ‘100 Word Challenge’ prompt here – I’m running close to the deadline as usual! Use the list of links to look at the inspirations of  others! The only brief was that the phrase I have shown in bold had to be included!

The flight from London to Lima was uneventful. At Lima, we were taken to a restaurant, where we were given a lovely meal before heading for the railway station. Now began our journey to the beautiful city of Cuzco, 3400 metres above sea level. As our altitude increased, I began to feel light-headed. At the hotel in Cuzco, they gave us cups of the local tea, a time-honoured headache relief. It was now late in the day, so after relaxing over a meal, we turned in for the night.

I woke with another headache, so I had more tea at breakfast, before the next train journey…
