Well the early start was worth it,we were there early enough to get to the Sun Gate, a couple of viewing points and then climb up Huayna Picchu in time for the first sun rays to break through the mist of the mountains and light up the ruins
After spending the rest of the day trying to avoid huge tour groups that descend throughout the afternoon we walked back to Agua Caliente just in time to catch some of the England Sweden train before jumping on the evening train to Cuzco. Thanks to a strike this journey took twice as long as planned which was just what we needed after being up since 4 and having done a lot of walking, gotta love those protesting South Americans!
