South America the adventure - Machu Picchu

How the hell in ancient times do these people build all these amazing things with out the modern day tools!!! I get since the 14th century of the Incas this has been asked over and over! Brilliant!
In Machu Picchu it rains 270 days a year. There was pretty bad weather in the morning there. But lucky after a long delay we boarded and got there for great weather a great day. Actually we were there 2 days it’s totally incredible.
This was on mine and Ann’s bucket list which was totally exciting, better than you could even imagine. You will also find the history dude totally amazing with everything from offerings to sacrifice! Oh yeah back then that’s what it was anout.
Crazy and fun it’s now ticked off the list.
Also we had an Inca massage before leaving omg 😮 this was the best ever! Those muscles may have been a little tight after all that walking. It’s precious if your going to South America put it on your list.
You ok now what’s funny people say why waste your money on travel!
