Ode to Machu Picchu

Even though embarking on a multiday trek is the preferred way to arrive at Machu Picchu, I had just a couple of days in Cusco before heading to the Peruvian Amazon, so I opted instead to take the train/bus there. I am so glad I did because the Vistadome train ride was quite fun and entertaining – complete with views, educational information and, on the way back from Machu Picchu, a dance and fashion show that can only be described as unique.

Below are some photos from the visit and an (attempt at an) ode to Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu
Breathtaking, Immense
Colorful, Living, Sacred
Humble, Magical, Strong, Peaceful
Mysterious
