The ruins were amazing. Everyone's familiar with them. Perhaps that's why I gushed so heavily about my experiences outside of Machu Picchu -- those are the days that people know so little about. But Machu Picchu, itself? Iâ€™m not going to go into it. This is why you are journeying there, so I wonâ€™t ruin the surprise by inundating you with my reactions.
