Machu Picchu!! Tuesday, November 1, 2016

It feels like Machu Picchu is the culmination of our trip but we are here during the last week because it is just the logical end of our loop through Peru. 

This morning we caught a bus from Aquas Calientes up to Machu Picchu and spent about four hours exploring the site. It is s stunning as everyone says – high on a mountain top surrounded by River canyon and more mountains. 

One cool thing we did is hike up to what they call the Inca Bridge. It literally hangs on the edge of a cliff. 

There were throngs of people and this is not the high season it’s hard to imagine what it must be like at Machu Picchu in July and August. 

In Aquas Calientes we stayed at a wonderful new hotel Cabaña.
