We just got back from Machu Picchu yesterday. The train ride, as bumpy as it was, it was kind of relaxing. You could take it all in from the train and get to see the sites. I have never imagined seeing Machu Picchu. It was like I was looking at a book or magazine. There are really no words to describe it. There was so much to take in. We had a guided tour the first day we were there. It was interesting to hear about, and understand the history better.
The second day we got to explore on our own. We went to the bridge, and saw some llamas while we were walking to see it. It was fun to pet and take pictures of them. There was a baby one, and it was super soft. After that, we had lunch, went to a market then got back on the train to go home. I was pretty tired and just wanted to sleep for the trip home the next day.
