Throwback Thursday: Day 2 Dead Woman Pass


Check it out!  Why do I look so happy/high/wtf?!! Well, I just finished the 2nd day of the hike from hell and I made it! I overcame so many fears that day; heights, ancient stairs, and the Andes damn high altitude. I was a heavy smoker back then so you can imagine that it kicked my ass.  On the plus side, I didn’t have a some the entire time there.  Why my pupils look dilated is because I used an ancient Inca trick to combat altitude sickness. It involved taking a coca leaf and placing a small piece of charcoal in the leaf, wrap it and park it in the corner of your mouth. The chemicals in your saliva, along with the leaves and the charcoal, will help to combat the altitude sickness. It really doesn’t take a genius to figure out why my eyes look like that. Before you ask, yes it’s legal, the “kit” cost about 2$ USD, and I felt gooood!  What a damn throwback.
