Machu Picchu! This was one of the most exhilarating days of my life. We awoke around 5:30am and loaded onto a bus for a 2 hour ride towards Machu Picchu. From there, we loaded onto a train for another couple of hours. Each moment on the train was more breath taking than then last. Eventually, we made it to Hot Springs, Cusco, Peru. We took another 20 minute bus ride (which was quite scary) up the mountain to reach our destination.
Here is a Joey looking at a stone that the Incas would sacrifice virgins on.
Here is a stone that the Incas carved to match the mountain-scape. That way they didn’t have to go to all of the other sacred mountains to worship and sacrifice.
Some of the native vegetation.
Brandon was fighting off some sickness, but still enjoyed every moment.
Our CPC team enjoying the view.
I had to take a few dramatic pics for my profiles…
After returning down the mountain, God gave us a beautiful rainbow in front of the beautiful mountains.
We hit the shops and enjoyed some of the tourist traps.
We finally headed home and to our surprise, a masked man danced with Heather on the train!
