Visit to Machu Picchu

Ethan FullSizeRender (2)This weekend my friends and I from ISA High School visited Machu Picchu. The ride there was a little tiring, however as soon as we got there I knew it was already worth it.

We first went to Las Aguas Calientes on Saturday and then on Sunday we went to explore Machu Picchu. It was a great experience as it is one of the seven wonders of the world.
