Listen


Good evening from Urabamba, Peru on this lovely August the 15th.

We are all getting ready, really excited about the start of our climb tomorrow. We will climb to Wayllabamba tomorrow.

Our day started really early in Cusco, to fireworks from the Cathedral at 6:30 in the morning. Then we were off on our tour and to see the sights of the Sacred Valley, seeing the sites of the phenomenal ancient Incan civilization. We saw architecture, art agriculture, open salt mines and the fantastic Andes. We also did a short climb so that we could get some acclimatization.

We really want to say a special hello to all the children at the hospital at BC Children's and I would like to do a shout out to my family back on Vancouver Island and to my daughter and her boyfriend who are out in the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario.

This is Coral Forbes signing off from Peru.
