The last stop in our 2007 World Tour was Aguas Calientes and Machu Pichu Peru (see first Sept blog). It was a very memorable place, even though it rained quite heavily.
However, the rain was nothing compared to what has happened there over the past few days. These Vancouver Sun photos portray a very different place than what we saw. What a tragedy.
Although our first impressions were not that positive, we eventually found it to be a charming, interesting village with very lovely people. Let's hope the place can be rebuilt.
