Machu Picchu, Peru, 2008.

I visited Peru in 2008 and got to go to Machu Picchu. It was amazing.

We arrived early in the morning and went straight past the ruins and up the mountain next to it. It was very foggy and cloudy and we could not see a thing down below. We waited for half an hour and slowly the fog lifted and the clouds parted. What a sight that was! The ancient city slowly revealed before our eyes, almost better than once it completely cleared up.

Walking around the ruins was also lots of fun. It was full of lamas and nooks and crannies to explore.

    • I’m glad you like it. I’m told doing the Inca Trail, a four day hike from Cusco ( the last town before Agua Calliente, the small town right below Machu Picchu), is amazing as well, as you go through ruins in the jungle and arrive in the mornign up from behind where that pic is taken and just take a turn on the trail and Voila!
