Up early to catch the bus and found we had a great guide to take us around. The site is just like you see the pictures on the telly, really gorgeous, ddnt know how they could have built something so huge in such a remote place right up in the mountains then the n the guide showed us that there ws a quarry on site but that it was also tradition for the incas to carry boulders with them from their home town when visiting Maccu Piccu and leaving them as gifts / mementos - tough people these incas.

The whole site is really breathtaking wth gorgeous terraces set amongst the mountains I know it sounds corny but you did really feel as if you were at one with nature......... maybe it had something to do with the thin air and gasping for a breath

Anyway even though it was really hot and we are so old and infirm we still managed to walk a little bit of the Inca trail
