Machu Picchu

After a 3-hour train ride from Cusco (the only way to get to Aguas Calientes, the town at the foot of Machu Picchu), and a 20-minute bus ride switching back and forth on an unpaved road up the side of the mountain, here we are looking across Machu Picchu to Huayna Picchu, the sugarloaf shaped mountain alongside, which has temples at the very top (only 400 people a day are allowed to climb up the hair-raising path to the top of Huayna Picchu--a number that didn't include us).
