WOW! It is so difficult to describe Machu Picchu. Photographs do not do it justice. After five days in the Sacred Valley and in Cusco, we visited Machu Picchu on February 5. It is huge in scale. It is complicated, but simple in many ways. It is a part of the rain forest environment, not separate from it. The Inca craftsmanship is difficult to fathom, especially since it was built five centuries ago. Even today, over hundred years after Hiram Bingham made Machu Picchu well-known to the western world, its purpose is still debated.
