Day 9 - Machu Picchu.
We got up at 5 to catch a bus to Machu Picchu at 630. For the first time in the trek, we did not need to carry our packs. As we got on the bus, we noticed that everyone else was sleepy whereas we had gotten used to waking up at 5 or 6 in ther morning. Machu Picchu is, as expected, spectacular. The only problem is the large numbers of people in the site. Fortunately, it was low season and it only started getting crowded around 1000. By the time it started getting crowded, we were heading up Huayna Picchu. I wanted to also hike to the Temple of the Moon but we ran out of time and had to return to Aguas Calientes to catch our train back to Cuzco.
