Machu Picchu

We spend the night in Aguas Calientes,  the strange little tourist town that has grown up at the bottom of Machu Picchu.   There is no road into the town,  only the train,   the only road is the one the buses zig zag up and down all day.    
I was so excited at the thought of a hot shower,  but alas,  I only had a cold one,  but at least I was clean.   
Our final morning is spent at Machu Picchu, probably the most astounding feat of engineering in all of ancient America. Temples,stairways, palaces and gabled stone dwellings are scattered everywhere, testifying to the energy and ingenuity of the builders.  It's quite amazing,  and our guide Lobo, again with such passion,  explains about the different areas.      
Then we have some free time before taking the train with the glass roof back for 1 1/2 hours to meet the bus,  which takes us back to Cusco. 
What an amazing 5 days.    I would highly recommend it,  but it is very challenging.
