Do you remember when you saw the picture of Machu Picchu for the first time? I bet it was quite impressive, at least it was for me. Yesterday I was lucky enough to see it with my own eyes.
I am not typical tourist, sceptical and not so excited about every major tourist attraction. So I was little bit afraid of Machu Picchu, afraid that is not going to meet my expectations or beeing just another spot in my already quite big and tiring, three month trip.
From what I learned yesterday, it does not matter how many pictures of Machu Picchu you saw before. It is like seeing it for the first time on a postcard picture; beeing shocked and amazed of its perfection; the city, terraces, location and mountains souronding the place are beautiful as parts and all together.
The postard picture does not show it all.
