Subject: Sangay Touring and high altitude medication
Ziners, First of all, thanks for the recommendation for Sangay Touring Company. I will explore their web site for Ecuador.

I took diamox in 1998 when I was at Lake Titicaca and Cuzco. The explanation that I was given was that it helps to oxygenate your blood so that there is actually more oxygen in your system. I also utilized Mata de Cocoa which is a hot tea made with the cocoa leaves. All the hotels we stayed at had it available in the lobby. I really do think it helped also.

Joan, my journal from Bolivia, Peru and the Amazon can be found, along with a lot of other material on Peru, at which is the travel website of our friends in Florida. You might find worthwhile information there. You will love Peru!

Ciao, Ruth Marie Colorado
