Macchu Picchu – Part 1

Posted in Uncategorized by fashionista514 on October 4, 2009

So today we visited the beautiful wonder of the world – Macchu Picchu! So gorgeous, so mind blowing as a concept! The fact that this ancient civilization was able to accomplish something we couldn't even possibly do with machines is absolutely astounding. With drain systems running through the village they were the pioneers of plumbing. Fresh water flows through their village and rainwater drains out down the mountain – preventing flooding and crop damage. The size and weight of some of the rocks (weighing quite easily tons), is phenominal. How the HELL did these guys get them up a 6,000 foot mountain? Truly incredible. And the view? A 360 degree perspective of the beautiful mountains, river, and sky.

We decided to climb the adjacent mountain from the Incan ruins… 300 meters up. It was quite the challenge to say the least!!! The hour and a half climb was well worth it though when we got to the top. A mind blowing view of macchu picchu and its surrounding scenery :). The best part? I owe it all to my Uggs that earned a newfound respect – them Aussies truly do know what they are doing :p. Enjoy the pics and know that the best shots are still to come!
