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
