TWIR – Llamas on the Mountain

Exploring the depths (well technically it’s heights, since it’s on a mountain) of Machu Picchu was pretty high up on ‘the list’ of things that I had always wanted to do.  Another thing high up on that list, find some llamas while I was there! Haha. The day was nearly over before I did, as they start to heard you out of the park somewhere around 5pm, not that I was all too reluctant, as my journey that morning started around 4am hiking up the side of the mountain.  Come to think of it, I had really hoped there were more people starting when I did.  I don’t know if I was early or late, just that I was alone.  It’s actually quite a walk from the town that you stay in to where you are on a trail to hike up.  Pitch black, creepy kind of quiet.  I remember that feeling like it was yesterday. Actually I was reluctant to leave, I would have loved to stay there till the sun was fully set and all sorts of colors filled the sky.  Alas, it wasn’t meant to be.  But, I did find my llamas.

Some dreams stay with you forever,drag you around but bring you back to where you were.Some dreams keep on gettin better,gotta keep believin if you wanna know for sure.
