Viewing Post for: Inca Trail 2018

Date: Sunday, July 29
Location: standing in line, drinking beer, waiting for the bus at Machu Pichu

True, True.  We have passed the sungate and entered Machu Pichu.  Another great day. We arrive via the sungate and suddenly all of this wonderful ancient site is below us.  So much magic.   

 It began before sunrise, climbing  in the cold to a viewpoint of a glowing 21,000 foot Salkantay, rolling icy ridges into the Amazon basin.  For a thousand, maybe two thousand years, people have been coming to this place to pray, to celebrate a timeliness and in awe a connection time and culture spans. It was different for us. In awe we drank coca tea and watched the sun hit the peaks, glow and then crest... 

 There is magic in sharing a journey with our Quechua friends, each other and this ancient place. It evolves over 4 days deep within us in a way we don't normally live.  

  And so we leave our new friends, continue  to deepen our friendships with our fellow travelers. 

 We shower, eat, sleep and will rise. The trick is to integrate the magic of these 4 days.
