July 24, 2011 – Machu Picchu

One hundred years ago today Machu Picchu was “rediscovered” by Yale historian Hiram Bingham. Actually, one of the locals, an 11 year old Quechuas boy named Pablito Alvarez led Bingham up to the “lost” city. The locals knew Machu Picchu was there. That said Mr. Bingham should get credit for reintroducing the city to the rest of the world. There are a lot of places I still want to visit in this world, Machu Picchu is high on the list. I’ve been to Stonehenge. I’ve visited Chaco Canyon a few times. I still need to complete the triad.
