Machu Picchu

Day 10:
Today was the biggest day of my trip almost the whole reason for coming to Peru. Today I am going to Machu Picchu. The day started out at 4 am. I woke to an air temp of 28 degrees yes it was cold. Needless to say I took a very hot shower with the door open to warm up the room. Since I didnt want to spend time lighting a fire. After that I headed down to the lounge to get some free breakfast. Then it was off to catch my bus to the next town over and get on the train to Machu Picchu station.
It was a 4 hour train ride that seemed to go by way faster. It may have to do with the fact that you have a 360 panoramic view cause the train has a glass roof and giant window on the sides. So you spend the whole trip with amazing views. Once you reach the station you then take a quick walk through a little shopping center to some buses. Then it off you go on a 30 min bus ride up the mountain to the top when you find Machu Picchu.
Machu Picchu is amazing everything about it say how the hell. It is so amazing to think that we as humans built stuff this great back in the 1400's. I want to sit and tell you everything but this post would go on and on. I am just going to say if Peru is not on your bucket list make sure to add it and I would put it at the top.
