Machu Picchu

Up for an 8.00 start and caught the bus to Machu Picchu. It is walkable but as it takes 30 minutes by bus zig zagging up the mountainside we thought as the ticket was paid for we would use it:-)

The site itself if massive. There are no words we can find that would do it justice. Even the photos we have taken will only get part of it over.

We had another guided walk around the site by Hector our guide. He has such a deep knowledge about the area including the geology, botany, history, there wasn't a question he couldn't answer.

Back to the village and a coffee or two and a bit more shopping for June.

Will be sad to leave here but tomorrow we are white water rafting and then on to the Amazon for a couple of days.

This trip is just wonderful. We are both very lucky (bit of an understatement really).

Later we take the train back to Cuzco. To give an idea of the terrain the 90km (about 60 miles) or so journey takes 3.5 hours as it weaves around the mountains following the course of the Urubamba River.

Easy peasy lemons a squeezy.
( sorry in phrase for the group. )
