Photographer's Note

Machu Picchu, Peru

I didn't get to do the Inca trail which was a little bit of a shame but we were just too busy partying in the touristic town Cusco. I joined some espanolas, a brazilian & a french in the hostel and we stayed in Agua Calientes overnight and decided that we didn't have money to take the bus and we would hike up to Machu Picchu instead. It was a pretty long hike from the bottom as all of us were not extremely fit. It was 6am in the morning when we began and it was very cold and rainy!! After a couple of hours of hiking & sweating, we saw all of these buses passing by...........we finally made it!!!!

I guess this is your standard kind of Machu Picchu picture, everyone just wants to take "the picture". But we really made an effort to climb all the way up there to take "the picture"!!! When we reached machu picchu we had perfect clear sky weather, it was just wonderful! Then after a while it was pouring down rain again.

Hope you enjoy this picture - one of the world's heritage sites.
