Machu Picchu, Peru
Arrived at Aquas Calientes train station. Short walk to hotel. Shorter walk to buses. Criss crossing and zig zagging up the mountain. Not my favorite kind of ride and very relieved to arrive safely…then…the wonder of Machu Picchu. Not at all crowded as the high tourist season was just ending. For older folks or the stair step challenged, I recommend bring walking stick(s). Again that is to transfer some effort from legs to arms and shoulders…and for improving balance.
