People doing the Inca Trail
 When the train arrived to Machu Pichu it was raining really hard and we got all wet going to the place where we could board the buses that will take us to the ruins. That final bus trip is very colorful, going up the mountain thru a narrow street full of mud, and at some points it was too narrow for two vehicles at the same time, I wouldn't want to be a bus driver there, but I guess they are used to it. Any way when we arrived to the entrance the rain has switched to a light drizzle. Because it was noon we went to have lunch at the buffet at the Sanctuary Lodge, it was very crowded, but the food was good. I would have liked that they had local food, so I could try new things, but it was your standard buffet type of food that you can get anywhere. When we finished eating the rain had stopped, and we had a wonderful rain free afternoon for our visit. The ruins are spectacular, the view leaves you without breath, it is really a great place to visit. We spent almost all afternoon walking all over the place, going up and down stairs, paths, and terraces. I took a lot of pictures, of those I posted a little bit less than half. Enjoy the views, and go and visit Machu Pichu in person it is worthwhile.

You have some beautiful photos and a great eye for photography. We didn't have llamas when we were there - I think maybe they take Sundays off :) Maybe the rain was good for you because it looks like it kept the crowds smaller and then the sun came out after all! Great photos!
