up to you, Machu Picchu

Monday, July 4, 2011

Then on the ladder of the earth I climbed
through the lost jungle’s tortured thicket
up to you, Macchu Picchu.
High city of laddered stones,
at last the dwelling of what earth
never covered in vestments of sleep.
In you like two lines parallel,
the cradles of lightning and man
rocked in a wind of thorns.

from Pablo Neruda's Heights of Machu Picchu

BEAUTIFUL! Hopefully, we'll make it there next year.

hike the Inca Trail, too, Kayni. :)

Loree said...

I see that you made it. Wow. That is so awesome.

Kayni said...

naku, kailangang magprepare if we'll take that route.

OMG, I'm so proud of you! I want to go there, too. But I don't know when I'm gonna be ready. You have to frame that worth a thousand words shot!

@Loree and Wits: thank you. it was really a dream come true for us.

@Kayni: both physical and mental preparations really helped. sa trail kailangan ng malakas na baga at matatag na tuhod. :)
