We visited the Inca ruins of Machupichu. We traveled by taxi to the train depot. Then we traveled by train to the town of Agua Caliente. We stayed overnight in a very small hotel. At 4:30 in the morning we got up to stand in line to catch the first bus to the mountain. The bus arrived at Machupichu at 9am. We then signed up for a time to climb the mountain behind Machupichu - Wanipichu. Only 400 people per day climb this peak, but it has a marvelous view of the ruins at the top. The ruins were truly incredible. A total of 172 homes, with other buildings besides. Up to 500 families could live in this community. The terraces were built to use for planting food.
