Puno Cusco / Machu Picchu Lima

So, this was the city we were looking forward the whole trip: Cusco and not to far away the mystical Machu Picchu. Nobody knows exactly why it was build and what it was used for, but many do speculate. Some people even do not take a guide because they are better fairy tale teller themselves.

04/21 My hosteria in Cusco, was owned by a German with a kind of strange taste. But as you know, I survived it.

04/22,25 I walked around a lot to explore the city by foot. And I took some time to relax in parks. There I met the cute little one on the right side.

04/24 Cusco has much more then just its closeness to Machu Piccu. Cusco was the capital of the Inca Empire. I visited the great site of Sacsaywaman (pronounced like Sexy woman, but don't tell nobody, I told you this)

04/25 The plaza de armas by night.

let's go to Machu Piccu...

04/24 Like everyone, I took the train to Aquas Calientes on the food of Machu Picchu. It's a 4 and half hour trip and afterwards you know what railways had been like in the early days.

04/24 This long and winding road leads uphill to the fabulous historical site.

04/24 Machu Piccu is gorgeous, no question. Lot's of plants and the surroundings... A river runs deep down in the valley almost all around the site.

04/24 This native boy managed to run downhill faster then our bus drove by taking shortcuts trough the jungle. Later he was rewarded by the passengers.
