These pictures are are a compilation starting with the 06:00 ride from Cusco to Poroy, the 100km train ride to Machu Picchu station at Agua Caliente, the bus ride to Machu Picchu, and the "garden of eden" that Machu Picchu was, is, and will be, as its restoration continues.

Final thoughts ... I hope there is a special place in hell for those thieves at Yale's Peabody Museum that, under the guise of being researchers, looted the treasures of Machu Picchu, took them back to the U.S., and are charging admission to see them.
