oooh, i need a sexy woman. oooh, i need a dirty girl.
before we went on our 4-day trek on the inca trail, we did a little practice hike to a nearby archeological site called sacsayhuaman. pronounced properly, it sounds like saxy whoa-man. pronounced like a dumb tourist, it sounds like sexy woman. get it? don't be that guy, dear blog readers. don't be that guy.
now, it turns out that if you are on foot you have to walk mostly on the sides of streets and highways to get to the various different sites. however, when travelling por caballo you are not allowed on the streets and highways, and you actually have to go through mountain passes in order to reach the different sites. it was kind of like stepping into one of those old school marlborough ads from the magazines. it was breath-taking. slighty terrifying at times, since i'd never actually been on a horse through steep rocky terrain and was suddenly envisioning all sorts of christopher reeve scenarios, but breath-taking none-the-less.
