We're going where?

These are my new buddies Helle and Christina. They do research on Lynch syndrome & stuff, but today we are leaving all that behind to go exploring in Peru. 
We are on the train to Machu Picchu even now!!!
 This is The Train Guy.
 And ZIP!
Well, not so much as zip, as a slow and easy clackety-clack across the fields and down the valleys, and then off the train in a town full of tourists and the people who try to sell them things. Then on the bus, bang-thump (careful of those other busses coming down - I thought this was a one-lane road) up up the mountain and here we are.
 Machu Picchu
This place is so awesome that no exclaimation points are necessary. I would just have to put rows and rows of them.
 The scenery is fantastic.
 The ruins are really cool, with niches to display the Sacred Rabbit and to make offerings to him.
 Back in the village we had a great lunch and a look around. 
For the whole story of our South American Adventure, see Have Genes Will Travel (in the coming days), and I'll be back with more in a few days.
