We arrived in Agua Calientes (the closest town to Machu Picchu) on sunday night. We went to the hot springs to soothe our extremely tired muscles, ate dinner, and went out for "one drink" to a local bar. However, those famous last words of one drink, turned into dancing the night away until close to 2 am. Then we had to wake up and leave for Machu Picchu a few short hours later!
When we got to Machu Picchu, it was rainy and cold. However, it cleared up by late morning. Jose gave us a tour of the ruins in the early morning, then around 10 am we climbed the nearby mountain to get the famous view of Machu Picchu! I couldn't believe that we were climbing another mountain, but once we arrived at the top, it was all worth the trek up!
Machu Picchu is definitely one of the wonders of the word. It is incredible to imaging people 600 years ago carrying stones up this mountain, sculpting them to perfection, and creating such a beautiful city!
Again, pictures say a thousand words.....so enjoy the photos!
