Machu Picchu

Yeah so In a brief summary I left Puerto Sunday morning and I got to Cusco at night (11.5 hours on the bus) the next day I got up at 1 am and we got ready and took a bus, to a place in the sacred valley called Ollantaytambo. From there we took a (narrow gauge) train to Machu Picchu pueblo, we got there at 6 something, Then we took another bus to the ruins, it was so cool when we showed up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We started climbing, all the other tourists were slow, and tired we pretty much ran up the mountain because we're  all used to more altitude. Machu Picchu is about 2000 meters and where I was in Puno is 3800 meters.  WE explored the whole city I took a LOT of pictures, we finished early so with some elders we entered in again. WE went up Machu Picchu for a SECOND TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I WENT UP TWICE!!!!!    It was a blast.  There were so many people here  I heard so many languages there.   It was amazing I'll show all the pictures when I get back.  I was really tired we left for Ollantaytambo at 6:30 and we got there 8:30 ish, then we couldn't find the bus to take us back!!!!!!!   We were starting to get worried but we found the guy, we got back to Cusco at 11 at night.   Now some Puerto news.

When I left the District Conference had a good attendance,  and we were getting the zone ready for the baptismal service this Saturday. Our investigator Lucero is going to be baptized on Saturday she's really excited and getting ready.  It wasn't that hot this week it was in 40 C a little above.  I'll send pictures of the service next Monday.

Mom I hope your fine and that you feel well in your treatments.  I love you.
