The agony of defeat. You get up at 3:30 in the morning to wait outside the gate to enter Machu Picchu for an hour. And once you get in the park, you hike for another hour. Why? To get to the Sun Gate for sunrise where you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the ruins.

Here’s where the agony comes in. 30 minutes into our hike it started raining. About 15 minutes later, it was pouring. Buckets and buckets of rain. With no end in sight. No sunrise for us.
