We left Cuzco at six AM by taxi for a half hour ride to a small town where we caught a train for a two hour ride to Aguascalientes. From Aguascalientes we got a bus up a very crooked road to Machu Piccu. Machu Piccu is an awe inspiring and amazing piece of architectural engineering. Consider the Inca had no written language and no beasts of burden. What an intellignet and audacious civilization that built Machu Piccu plus many other sites throughout their empire. It is amazing that they were conquered by such a small army.
