Wayna Picchu: it means ‘Young Mountain’ in Quechuan. At nearly 1,200 feet above Machu Picchu (about 8,000 feet above sea level), Wayna Picchu blessed us with a stunning view of the ruins on Machu Picchu mountain. It also provided for yet another physical and mental challenge, and offered up some pretty impressive vertical. This picture isn’t the greatest representation, as the ‘Cloud Forest’ was in true form yesterday AM. Let’s just say that, after 4 days of hiking, it wasn’t so easy. But the view was beyond impressive and well worth it. More to come.
In Cusco now, enjoying some Thai food and shisha…by myself. Tom’s stomach isn’t feeling too hot, so he’s resting back at the Hostal. Leave it up to me to find the only shisha place in Cusco. And, by my solo. Lovin’ it.
