People always say “turn lemons in lemonade.” I believe in the wisdom behind the phrase but i have a deep appreciate for the fact that it’s easier said then done.
We made it to Machu Picchu only to have it pour buckets and buckets of rain. This picture is evidence of the rain. Only one person in our group wasn’t soaked. And that’s because he was wearing a rubber rain suit.
I’ve wanted to go to Machu Picchu for years. No joke. I cannot begin to describe my disappointment over the rain. It was actually closer to despair and resentment. The time, the energy, the money… And finally some new friends of ours said it best: F—- it!
Side note: I actually made my best friend pose for this picture. What an amazing person: she was tired, soaked and not feeling well but still put on a smile. I knew she’d be mad if we didn’t take the picture. (I was right and she happily admitted it, after we got out of the rain.)
