Peru & Machu Picchu
The 5 mile long zig-zag road to Machu Picchu comes up from Aguas Calientes. The famous ruins are in the clearing on the left beyond the red roof of the government hotel. (It was recently remodeled & rooms cost about $300/night!) On the right is Huayna Picchu peak, site of the Moon Temple. Local boys like to earn tips by running along a trail that goes straight down the hill. They meet downhill buses at every level of the road and shout "Gooooood-byyyyeeeeee!
