Primer Melting Annealing Calculator

When we arrived in Cusco, we decide to go to Machu Picchu because it was accused of strikes, and we must go the day before.

We take the alternative path expensive to train (the line the world's most expensive per kilometer!): Departure from Cusco in a van toward Santa Maria. Ten minutes after departure, we hang another van, but we can leave without stopping until ... next collision. This time, we go right into the back of a pickup, and the driver has dropped a few notes before leaving. It will be noted later that the tires were smooth complement! A franchising
neck has more than 4000 meters, and arrive in Santa Maria, or you take a taxi to Santa Teresa.
beautiful landscapes observed a 4 on the back seat, before arriving in Santa Teresa, or there is another colectivo to Hydroelectric. This
road was completely destroyed by floods early this year, and there was not long ago we had to cross some passes with a zip!

The road was engulfed by the flood

Once arrived in Hydro, which is nothing but a hydroelectric power plant and station, we catch up with the railway that it runs for 2 hours to reach Aguas Calientes, the town of Machu Picchu.

The following day, up at dawn to climb the 1,700 steps at night which lead to the entrance of Machu Picchu. It is possible to climb to the summit of Wayna Picchu (the mountain behind the photo), but space are limited and that's why people come as soon as possible at the entrance. We arrived the first two!
After an hour of waiting, finally we enter the site, and even after seeing the pictures dozens of times, we remain amazed at the beauty of the site! We can explore it before the crowd and see the various temples (Temple of the Condor, the Temple of three windows), and the area of the observatory. There are also other areas, including that of farmers with crops on the terrace.
Historians still do not know really why Machu Picchu was built and deserted.

Then we can finally go to the top of Wayna Picchu, from where it has an incredible view over Machu Picchu. Looks like he was laying on top of mountains!

Finally, after our picnic (the only restaurant Site obviously exorbitant practice ...) we descend to Aguas Calientes for a well deserved nap.

The next day we left along the railway, but you learn to Hydro that the strike is that day! So we start to walk back to Santa Teresa, before finding a taxi that brings us to destination. Here we find our driver to go and that brings us to Santa Maria. Fortunately, everyone is not on strike, yet the strikers blocking the road ...
There is a taxi to Santa Maria, who manages to get past the first block by taking back roads. We arrive at the pass, regularly stopped by removing branches and stones along the road, but the driver was not very serene. Indeed, the strikers have a habit of caillasser the buses daily to strike ...
We arrive around the second was blocked by rolling on the railway, but it remains blocked at third. Despite hours of negotiations, we can not pass, and therefore we expect the nightfall. Blockers do not give in and light fires, but we finally found a small path, narrower than the car, allowing us to leave.
Finally, we arrive in Cusco early evening.
