Photographer's Note

As promised, I wanted to show another main photo of this famous Machu Picchu, with 2 more views in the WS.

Malgo commented in my last photo how surprised she was that there seemed to be so few people on the site.

Thats because we arrived first. We stayed for a few hours, and when we left there was a long long lineup of people and line up of tour buses.

Just in case you didn't know, you can't actually hike all the way to the Machu Picchu Ruins. For example, our 5 day trek to Machu Picchu takes you to the mountain, at the resort town. All the hikes are the same.

After the 5 days of trekking, you get to relax, shower, sleep at the hotel thats pre-booked for you, and THEN you choose a time to catch the bus the next day. Believe me, its better this way because after the Trek you stink, stink, and stink a little bit more! Having the shower, shave and going out for a nice dinner in the evening was fabulous.

We caught the first buses leaving at 5 am. We arrived by 5:30 or so.
