Since seeing Gael Garcia Bernal portraying the infamous revolutionary Che when he was still a young and impressionable Ernesto in The Motorcycle Diaries, I’ve been intrigued by Machu Picchu. I’ve watched countless programs on television where they investigate the site deep in the Andes Mountains and speculate about what the remarkable building and its surrounding area was. Fortress? Palace? Summer home? While I love any ancient or historic site, there’s something extremely remarkable and beautiful about Machu Picchu, built into the side of a mountain in the middle of nothing but nature.
