Machu Picchu

We went to Machu Picchu by train both ways. Machu Picchu was a lost city of the Incas. It was covered in jungle until 106 years ago. In 1911 it was cleared. There are lots of tourists around because it's very popular.
It was 3 and a half hours. The people were very nice, they gave us a snack. While we were having a snack, we looked at the beautiful view. The train arrived at Aguas Calientes. When we arrived we went straight to our hotel.

When we arrived at our hotel we weren't very impressed with them. There was no heater, no safe and mould on the walls.

We took the bus to Machu Picchu. We were the only people on the bus. Although there were lots of tourists, you could just walk around the corner and there was no one there. I made a video and my video had beautiful views of the ruins.
We liked is so we went back the next day. We did a walk up to the Sun Gate. The Sun Gate is the end of the Inca Trail. It was beautiful, however, it was hard because I had to climb some of it. There was a llama at the top. People were feeding it chocolate and I fed it fresh, tasty green grass.
I will never ever forget Machu Picchu because it's beautiful and surrounded by mountains.
