Got up at 04:30 to visit Machu Pichu. There a cockerels outside my window so I had no difficulty waking up. By the time we had got to the bus stop there were about 300 people ahead of us but there were lots of busses. Saw the sun rise over Machu Pichu which was great. The reason I don't have many pictures of it is due to the fact that I am an idiot and checked in my bag with my camera in it (they don't let you take bags in).
The Incas worshiped 3 gods; the snake (god of earth), the puma (god of life) and the hawk (god of the heavens). The Incans were around from 1500-1600 which is relatively recent. They estimated there were only 25-35,000 people including slaves therefore to complete buildings of such magnotude in such a short time is amazing boardering on impossible to me.
They estimate you can see 60% of Machu Pichu, 20% is in the jungle and 20% is underground. The Incas burned Machu Pichu when the Spanish were coming for reasons unknown but the Spanish never found it.
