To end my 3 part saga of Peru, I would like to share some pictures of the beautiful city of Cuzco. This city has a rich Incan history as well as a strong Spanish influence.
However, don't be fooled by the outer beauty of this city! As you might deduce from the title of this post, Cuzco carries a curse for the innocent traveler. That curse comes in the form of Typhoid Fever! Yes, while in Cuzco, both Steph and I ate something, we're not quite sure what the "something" was, that was contaminated. Feel free to look up typhoid if you're curious as to what exactly contaminated our food....I don't really want to say! As a result, we have been sick in bed for the past 5 days and have missed the entire first week of school!
We went to a clinic nearby soon after we started having symptoms of tyhoid, unbeknownst to us that that's what they were, where they thought it best to pump us full of this gross-looking-neon-yellow-vitamin-enhanced liquid.
Thankfully we are on antibiotics now and are recovering. We even think we can be back at school on Monday....which is great news because we miss our students and can only entertain ourselves for so long!
Thanks to everyone for all of your prayers thus far. God is faithful and has shown Himself to be more than enough...even if one has tyhpoid!
