My birthday and Machu Picchu



April 29 was my birthday, and a very special one too, since we spend it in Machu Picchu.
I always wanted to visit Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas, and what an amazing place it is! We got up at 3:30 in the morning to go from Cusco to Ollantaytambo to get the Machu Picchu train; a long trip, but worth it! Here is my birthday card, some coca leaves to chew, and some photos for you.
