Machu Picchu in one word: WOW!

We finally made it Machu Picchu today, after failing on both Saturday and Sunday due to landslides.

It was amazing! Grand Canyon was previously #1 on my Most Amazing Places list, but Machu Picchu definitely topped that – despite stiff competition from the Great Wall of China and South Island of New Zealand. Well actually, if you ask the kids they’ll still say Legoland in Denmark :)

Despite the rainy season we had great weather all day except around lunch (which was fine, since we were inside at that time). During the morning we had a private guide who explained some of the key parts of the ancient town, but the most fun part was actually the afternoon, when we explored the ruins on our own. David took on a guide role and took us to the highest possible point, with a most amazing view over the whole town and surrounding mountains (the first photo in the gallery below).
