We rose while it was still dark, clumsily pulling on warm clothes in the tent before emerging into the crisp air and checking flashlights while we sipped coca tea. As in a pilgrimage line, we followed the guide single file, climbing up and up, until we reached the Gate of the Sun. As the gray sky turned pink and orange, there was the object of our quest: the Inca stone complex of Machu Picchu.
