On Machu Picchu
“You may think of me as a snarky, cinical bastard always quick with a dismissive remark, a glib comment, a stupid crack, but here I don’t have a lot to say. The word beautiful really does not describe does it. It’s inadequate. To see it 360, to feel the wind, to smell it, Just the size. The mixture of being absolutely blown away by the mountains alone… just the mountains alone. Add to that one of the true wonders of the world. Add to that slight altitude wooziness, and the sort of vertigo inducing feeling of standing on the precipice. It’s – enlightening … Alright. I’m hungry. And actually I need a drink. Ok. A little ungraceful. But you try to summon up all this in a sound byte. There’s just no way."And then later on he said this:
“I have to say … I have been to some truly breathtakingly beautiful places and by any accounts Machu Pichhu takes the crown.”In 5 weeks and 3 days I get to go there. So. Very. Excited.
