Day 5 Machu Picchu

WOW, ……… it is totally just….WOW…..the journey to get here itself is crazy, and this place is magical.  We spent about 5 hours climbing around.  You can leave and come back so we did take a break for about an hour.  It is HUGE…and we didn’t do all of it.

So even being 50 and out of shape (me), I ended up climbing more then I thought and getting to the top, even if I did have to stop every 10 steps or so, it was worth it.  My son got some of the best high top views, cause he is young and in shape 🙂

This is by far one of the most gorgeous, intriguing places I have ever seen.  How did these people who built here even find this place?  How did they build here?  Where did the stones come from? How is it their structures are STILL here?  I don’t think we could do this in our modern age, it is CrAzY to think about.

If you can make it here, get here, this is definitely a once in a life time experience.

Look at how blue the sky is, how green the hills are, how beautiful and lush



There were ALOT of stairs…lots of up and down, lots of breaks to make it to the top!


PH up and Down????

Sooo I am doing my growing as you know, and they give you a bunch of chemicals….CHEMICALS… adjust the PH of your water up or down.

The prime PH is 5.5 and my tap runs about 8ish, so I pull out my bottle of PH lowerer and it says CAUSTIC wear protective Gloves and Eye wear??? HUH???? Not only is it expensive it can be bad for you.

So then I am getting out my grow cubes and it says…..get this….to adjust your PH USE A LEMON….OMG…..this seems well..odd. So I tried it and by golly by gum it works…to LOWER the ph, not sure about the natural way to raise it though.

But seriously, why wouldn’t everyone prefer to do it the natural, cheap and oh I don’t know…..SAFE way???? Now I have to figure out what to do with this other stuff!!!
