This morning Matt and the other gentleman in our group got up at 4am to hike Wayna Picchu with Ayul. There was only 200 passes allowed to get into the second stop inside Machu Picchu so they had to be there early in order to make it. My stomach was not feeling settled so I stayed in bed for a bit then walked around Aguas Calientes and saw some of the shops in the market. When they came back, Matt said the hike was straight up and not for anyone with a fear of heights! The mist had been quite thick as they hiked up so they sat on top for about 30 minutes to an hour waiting for it to clear. It finally did and he said they got some amazing views of Machu Picchu below. Worth the hike up and down he said! We had lunch together and went back on the train to Ollantaytambo where we picked up the rest of our baggage. Our private transfer took Ayul and the four of us back to Cusco where we settled in for another restful night at the Taypikala Hotel.
