Greetings From Machu Picchu

Words and pictures can’t adequately describe this wonder of the world.  So these words will be brief, and I’ll offer a few pictures of the journey from the city of Cusco on the Hiram Bingham train, and the destination, the ruins of this ancient Incan settlement.

      I’m amazed he hiked up here without the modern amenities. But what’s astounding is that the Incas built this place and it’s still standing in excellent shape.
