Finally….Machu Picchu. Yes, it is an impressive slight. It’s one not to miss, even despite the hordes of tourists climbing and crawling around the ruins. The best thing to do, just like I did, is to look for a quiet spot and sit down. Enjoy the views. the best time? Before 11 and after 3. In between it is the most busiest time. The calmness returns around 5-ish when it’s only you and some glorious Inca heritage.
