The day had finally come – it was time to see Machu Picchu! Our morning started early, about 5am. We were staying in Yucay at a wonderful new B&B in the Sacred Valley (Casa de Tres Osos – we highly recommend it!), so we took a taxi from there to the town of Ollantaytambo where we caught the train up to the high jungle. Unfortunately Cliff and I were still sick, so we were mustering all the strength we could for this trip. We had come too far to go without seeing one of the 7 Wonders of the World!
The train was really a neat experience. The riverside that we followed was beautiful and watching the scenery turn from valley to jungle was so cool.
