#50 Something Unexpected * Originally posted on 5/18/2016

So I'm, very sorry that I am writing so late. But there is a very good reason for that.
And the reason is that I totally went to Machu Picchu today! And it was suuuper cool! We woke up at 2:00 this morning and took a 1 and a half bus hour ride to the train station, where we took an hour and a half train ride to the town of Machu Picchu where we took another half hour bus ride to Machu Picchu itself. It was quite the adventure. And we just got back like... a half hour ago. But it was really something. I learned that Machu Picchu means old mountain and that was cool. Also learned alot about the Quechua's. So all really interesting and fun. But now it's almost 8:00 here and I am very tired. So I am going to send some really cool pictures and call it a night! But I had a great week and I'm doing well and I have my first Concilio tomorrow! Whoo! So that should be interesting. But yeah. All for now!
Love you all and have a splendid week! 

I just got a selfie. 

This is the Inca bridge. I guess that when the Inca came... he crossed this bridge. Also note worthy. 

The classic Machu Picchu shot. 

 Hermana Baker also came. Cool little reunion. 
And hermana Borja. I totally picked her outfit. Last monday we were crawling through the mall for like 3 hours looking for something perfect for her to wear. Who would have thunk that it would be a simple maroon shirt with blue jeans. Simplicity at it's finest. Gotta love a purist. 
 And theres me. In it. 
That's us at 2 oclock this morning. Hermana Harris y mi compi 

 I don't think I've ever been in a train... so a picture was necessary. 

 The welcome sign in the town Machu Picchu.

 This is the ceremonial rock. i don't know what types of ceremonies take place here... but you have to bet that they were cool. Incas pues. 

My companion ALMOST fulfilled her dream of kissing a llama. Been there done that and it's nooot all it's cracked up to be.
