Machu Picchu

After 5 days and endless steps I (finally!) reach Machu Picchu, one of the 7 wonders of the world, built during the Inca empire in 1450 – what will always come with the memory of this site will be the days of passing waterfalls, crossing streams and picking wild strawberries, accompanied by the rhythmic clacking of my hiking stick.
How many generations have these stones stood witness to over the decades? Times like this reminds me of the minuteness of our lifespan in the history of the world.
