April 29th, 2017 – Machu Picchu – Peru

We went back to Machu Picchu this morning.  It is so beautiful and magical in the morning mist.  We got to see the lower half this time.  We got extremely lucky with the weather.  It was a pleasant temperature and the sun shone during part of the time on both days.  It is really something to see Machu Picchu in the clouds and the sun.

As we were riding up in the bus, our guide told us that there used to be young boys that would get on the bus at the top, say hello, get off the bus and then race the bus down to the bottom and get back on the bus for tips.  They had to suspend this because the boys were making so much money they started dropping out of school.   The last picture shows a stone that was carved and set so that the 4 corners point North, South, East and West.  Leslie put the compass on her cell phone down to check it out and it was exactly right.  It is so incredible how advanced the Incas were.
