Machu Picchu and beyond

Real life in Ollantaytambo
Real life in Ollantaytambo
It rained during the night and I awoke to find the clouds and fog extremely heavy…so much for sunset over Machu Picchu. But this was our only day, so we left early to get in line for tickets to hike to Wayna Picchu. With only 400 tickets issued per day, we were lucky to get numbers 394-397; we opted for the 10:00 entry time, hoping the sky would clear. Although the clouds never completely cleared, they parted to give us a spectacular view of Machu Picchu from the top of Wayna Picchu. I wasn’t going to go up because I didn’t think it would be clear enough to see anything, and even if I hadn’t, the hike was more than worth it…it was difficult and a real challenge for me, so I came away feeling great about having completed it and fortunate to have had a peek at what laid below. We spent the afternoon shopping in Aquas Calientes before taking the train back to Cusco.
