Machu Picchu, and on the way!

on the way, in the bus to Ollantaytambo 






 and arrived: The last town the Spaniard conquered before 
Machu Picchu





the train from Ollantaytambo to Aquas Calientes


along the river Urubamba

the view from our hostel in town




from the bus to the holy Inka Empire 


finally arrived
Machu Picchu








the Condor temple


the Sun temple


a south turned stone for navigation, before the iPhone could show us everything!?


the Sundial


It's meant that Machu Picchu was inhabited from women only




and Lamas


and Hummingbirds


the Inka bridge, a 579 meter drop. One of the two places to access Machu Picchu. It's closed for the Inka trail since a few years   


and back in Aquas Calientes, the day before Christmas.
A big Christmas-tree made of plastic bottles on the square.
Not less than one ton of garbage do the tourists leave per day in the aria
