We woke up around 6 with the goal of meeting our guide and catching the bus from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu for 7am. We had tickets for the secondary hike Wayna Picchu at 10 am and wanted to make sure we had Hendrik’s guided tour before he had to leave. As usual Hendrik delivered, providing us history/insight and including a few of his own interpretations.
The Wayna Picchu hike exhausted us so after descending we headed back Aguas Calientes for some food and beer. That night we took a train ride and a sketchy mini-bus ride back to Cuzco where we had to say bye to Ann and Joel. A few days of recovering and we are off to Puno and Lake Titicaca!
