Day Seven - Machu Picchu

Beautifully framed doorway
Beautifully framed doorway
We head up to Machu Picchu early in the morning to beat the crowds. Machu Picchu is one of those special and mysterious places that is difficult to describe – I certainly can't do it justice and won’t even try. All I can say is that my favorite spot was the Gate of the Sun. I think the view from that spot is one of the most unique in all of the world.

In the afternoon we all re-group at the train station for the train/van ride back to Cuzco. We arrive in Cuzco late in the evening. Roomate Andrew is headed for the Galapagos in the morning, so he and I treated ourselves to a farewell dinner of very tasty alpaca at the El Monastario.
