Tango Travel

Just a week away from our flight to Buenos Aires and the beginning of the Rally of the Incas which goes through Argentina, Chili  and Peru. Stewball was shipped from Savannah, GA back in September. We haven't heard, but I'm sure he is about to arrive safely.

Even before the rally starts, we will join friends for a birthday party (and maybe some additional surprises) at a dinner and tango club. I love the tango. Never learned it, but if the opportunity arises, I'm game. I'm sure we'd look good.

A bit more on the rally route. We have never been in any of these countries, so it will all be new. After seven days in Argentina, we cross into Chili at the remote border post at Paso Tromen but then on day 12, cross back to Argentina and back to Chili on day 16.

Now here's the real challenge, on day 21, we cross from Chilli to Peru at 14,00 feet and then climb to 15,00 feet before our descent. We and Stewball have never been at that altitude. So the question is, who will have the most trouble? We have packed O2 for us and octane booster for Stewball. Ed and I will also take Acetazolamide beginning a couple of days before our accent.Yes, Machu Picchu is on our route, a visit on a day off in Cusco.
