So 3.40am and we wake up in a hostel in Aguas Calientes and get ready to walk up to Machu Pivcchu in the dark. We wanted to see the sunrise up there and book a walk up the other mountain, Wayna Picchu, and the bus seemed like a wussy option - WRONG! The walk was so hard, all steep step, which at that time in the morning after 4hrs sleep and no breakfast - was hard! But worth it. We were early in the queue and were ecstatic when we atrted our tour at 6.30 am and glanced the city and mountains for the first time. WOW!!!!!!!
