Mystically True, Machu Picchu

Take a virtual tour.

My commemorative stamp as the site celebrated its 100th year when I visited in 2011.

In memory of Anthony Bourdain, who taught us more than alcohol drinking, culture, cussing,  food, fun, geopolitics and sarcasm in this transitioning phase called life and to the thereafter. I wrote this article so that the world would know more about this majestic place and remembering it as his personal favorite  or as he would say in the No Reservations episode“Machu Picchu takes the crown.”
