thunder storms, cancelled landing, wobbly trains and bumpy long bus rides to finally see Machu Pichu. the site was empty because it is rainy season. massive swarms of no see um bugs. quite a bit of casualty in the group. we managed to mostly avoid getting bitten with large quantity of deet spray. Lesser of two evils. well worth the visit despite all the obstacles. great to finally see the citadel but once is enough.
