The room is beautiful, it's a corner room on the 2nd floor with a beautiful view of the roaring river out two extra large windows.
Breakfast is the usual--bread, butter, jam, fresh juice, eggs, coffee, tea, banana.
The owner is so nice, he just couldn't be nicer.

Machu Picchu (meaning 'old peak' in Quechuan) actually refers to the large mountain behind the city, as when Hiram Bingham (the city's rediscoverer) was led to the site by a young indigenous boy, he thought the boy was referring to the city when he was pointing and exclaiming 'Machu Picchu', but was ...
