... our tent service of tea and a warm bowl of water to wake ourselves.
Dressing for the now very familiar rain we gobbled down our breakfast and were on the road somewhere close to 6:30.
Our first chore of the morning was a steep incline to a 3900m pass, this offered the chance of spectacular views but for us it was only mist and cloud. We did have the chance to stop at the Inca sight of Runkuraqay where our guide gave us some more facts about the Inca and ...

We had lunch in a small town called Huaman Marca and carried on through Santa Maria to the start of our short walk for the day.

You cannot hike the inca trail without a proper guide and certified company. Those companies come in many forms, most of them foreign owned ...
... day was Machu Picchu day - I was so excited! We got up early to get the bus at 5am and then Frank gave us a tour of the complex. It was smaller than I expected but the views were spectacular. We posed for the classic picture and about a million others, taking in the view in all directions. We could see the bridge that we crossed yesterday, as well as the railway track we followed. David and I also climbed Huayna Picchu, the mountain next door. We climbed it at ...
