What an amazing place. I can absolutely recommend a visit. And I visited on Friday the 13th--and there was a full moon out as we rode the train back from the site. Life is good. 9/13/2019
Makenna is fine if I do this without her.

Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu – "Old Mountain", pronounced – is a pre-Columbian Inca site located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level. It is situated on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba Valley in Peru, which is 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Cuzco and through which the Urubamba River flows. Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti (1438–1472).
