Machu Picchu Update

Machu Picchu reopens to tourists: "Train service to Peru's main tourist attraction Machu Picchu, one of the world's most prized heritage sites, partially reopened yesterday after heavy rains cut off the ancient citadel earlier this year.

The formal reopening of the ancient Inca citadel will be held Thursday, with a hand from Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon, tourism office PromPeru said.

The 15th-century city perched around 2500 meters above sea level is the most visited site in South America, a pillar of the Cusco region and the source of 90 per cent of Peru's tourist revenues, according to the country's finance ministry."

First it said the word verification didn't match, then it said there was a problem, then something else, and now we end up with 4 posts!

Sorry about that - please feel free to remove the extras.

Very interesting. Something must be wrong on blogger's end.

And since Sarandon was there, I can't believe Stilwell wasn't lurking around.
