... again; and then we descended into our final campsite at a measly 2700m above sea level. We really got to enjoy the ruins and the walk today, and we were rewarded with a sunset stroll to the ruins near to the campsite called Little Machu Picchu. What an impressive complex! Another rum+hot chocolate, but not such a late night if playing cards as tomorrow is a super dooper early start.
