"You've come a long way baby" This specific advertising gimmick of the Virginia Slims cigarette reminds me of my adventure through the magnificent Andes mountains. It was my life dream to make this trip and it finally came into fruition.
It may be my last time that I can undertake such a challenging trip, but the experience and adventure suffices for my feeling satisfied that at last I made it. During this trip, I was in touch with my spiritual self. Of course, I owe much of it to my gracious and knowledgeable guide, Victor. I can say that Victor saved my life when unexpectedly experienced dizziness and vertigo. He walked alongside with me and made sure that I make it through.
Some of the highlights of this adventure were getting acquainted with many wonderful and like-minded people who became my "family".
