Looking down at Machu Picchu.
When we arrived at the popular travel destination we saw nothing at all. But after half an hour the sky cleared a little and the majestic landscape became visible

    Just to let you know... if you turn the image 90 degrees counterclockwise, you will see how the mountain from the back turns into a face. The story says that the Mayans carved the rock to give it that look.
