Peru - Day 6 Part I - Aguas Calientes, Flowers, Birds
Most of the group returned to Machu Picchu but Sigrid and I decided to stay in town and look around. It had been raining all morning and we weren't anxious, no matter how fabulous Machu Picchu is, to climb around on wet slippery rocks and try to keep the cameras dry.
Here they are again......the same little people who were on the wall of our first hotel room in Lima.
We walked around Aguas Calientes a little and got caught in a torrential downpour. We hid under awnings until the rain slowed.
We had signed up for a Nature Walk around the hotel grounds, but decided to just look around ourselves at our own pace. I found the locations where the staff had put bananas in the trees to lure the birds so I sat on a bench and waited with the telephoto lens ready.
