It’s now 4:35 AM. We’re gonna have breakfast and we’re going to try to catch one of the first busses up to Machu Picchu. I’m excited to see what all the fuss is about. I’m the very first one here for breakfast. This is the line at 5:00 in the morning. It’s 5:15 in the morning. It’s 5:42 AM. We didn’t have to wait too long to get on the bus. It’s so bumpy! Ok, so Machu Picchu is super touristy, But there’s a reason: Because it’s awesome. It’s one of the most amazing places I’ve ever seen. Check it out. I’m starting the hike up to Huayna Picchu. It should take about 45 minutes each way; We’ll see because my knee kind of hurts. Going up these kind of steps is kind of meditative. You just focus on the next one in front of you; not how many are ahead, and not how many are behind. Just one more step. I would tell you guys how many steps this is, but I don’t wanna know. So I’m just gonna Wikipedia it when I…get home. I’m at the top of Huayna Picchu. It took me almost exactly 45 minutes. And that’s Machu Picchu down below. So the trick to climbing up a mountain is to go as slow as you need to. Don’t stop until you get to the top. It’s kind of like meditation. Just keep going until you get there. Whew, just finished. It’s 12:51 PM. And this is the line for the bus. I definitely recommend buying your tickets beforehand. Ready for lunch! This place is so cute! [Really long yawn…] We’re on our way back to Cusco.
