Finally on the Train!80 viewsBecuase of the landslides 4 months ago, the first part of the "train journey" actually takes place on a bus on a series of roads - some long-standing, some hastily cut through fields or along the tracks.
First View of Machu Picchu63 viewsBecause we visited on the winter solstice, the crowds were horrendous. As we filed in, we were literally pushed forward by thousands of visitors behind us - we couldn't even stop to take a photo!
Waiting for the Sun68 viewsEven though it is still 50 minutes before the sun would rise over the mountain, the entire area above the Sun Temple was packed with people waiting to see the first rays hit the altar. It ended up being clouded over, so nobody saw it.
Davy loves the Alpacas!73 viewsYes - a bunch of people were photoshopped out of this pic!
