This was a perfect climax of a somewhat difficult trek. We were tired but happy. We did a lot of exploring that afternoon and stayed there until many of the tourist were gone. I then hatched a plan. The following day we would sneak up the mountain and hide in the bushes. When the night came we find a spot and take a picture of a star lit Machu Picchu. It made a lot of sense since the Inca were keen astronomers. However as it turned out i was trapped on the mountain, alone, in an thunder storm. I didn’t get the picture I wanted. So I will have to come back some day.
