This is one of the most stunning and impressive man-made sites in the world, I suppose. I was amazed to see how huge Machu Picchu (“Big Peak”) really is — not just the mountain, but the entire collection of terraces, buildings and canals. It’s truly incredible to see and to realize it dates back to about 1450, the height of the Inca empire.
We had a perfect day there to explore the ruins.
This cool looking local guy was very willing and happy to pose for me.
In addition, the whole area surrounding the site is absolutely gorgeous.
