And we’re off, starting with the train cemetery. It will be a 3 days, 2 nights journey in some of the driest and highest places I have ever been in, sleeping on the third night at 4600 meters altitude. Needless to say I didn’t sleep much, and for the first time in the trip suffered from altitude sickness. In the morning the driver gave me a local concoction with some herbs and coca leaves and I felt better.
