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. Here’s an attempt at an ode to Machu Picchu:

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