MACHUPICCHU!!!
Land trip to Cuzco from Quito

A view from Miraflores in Lima A view from Miraflores in Lima (Betty Jaramillo)
We started with a great decition, don't hike up to MachuPicchu and take the bus ride!
Around 05h00 am we started our journey to the Inca Fortress. When we arrived we followed the people and ended up in a line to hike the Waynapicchu.... we got our space between the 200 ones allowed so deceided to do it.
We hiked up for 40 minutes the guys and Alexa and me in one hour 10 minutes. In our way we were thinking why we didn't chose the "small one" but when we arrived to the top understood that the efford was completely paid. The views from there were amazing. We did it! It was the best part of our trip.
Back to the ruins, we meet Ruben, he was an indian guide... just great!. Furthermore explaining us about hte complex and its wonders, he "cleaned us". He used a mix of plants that I can't descrive you how it gave us back our strenght right when we were ready to quit the visit...I really can't explain.
Visiting MachuPichu is a perfect way to understand the Inca civilization as a magnificent one who is still teaching us lots of their discoveries: Getting here is something all must put on their checking list.
On the afternoon we took our train back to Ollantaytambo and Victor was ready to drive us back to Cuzco.
