So do you think people will be able to guess where we are based on the landscape? I’m not
我不确定 现在起了雾 我们该在哪里 远处该是什么？
too sure. It’s quite foggy right now. Where could we be? What could be off in the distance?
Good question. Should we tell? Yes. It is Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu. That is Machu
Picchu guys. Breathtaking is it not?
This is a baby llama having breakfast. Breakfast time.
Can you give us an update on the current situation? So the current situation is that it has stopped
raining. Yes. And it is starting to clear a bit. We’re hopeful. Right now it is eight
thirty six, and we’re hopeful that maybe around ten or eleven, if it doesn’t rain again, that
we’ll have some sunshine. Clear visibility of Machu Picchu. Get those iconic views. Yeah.
We know that the Quechua people were able to mummify people. But they used to mummify
some important people from their culture. So they used to mummify to the royal family,
they used to mummify to some people who were part of the high class people. So then they’d
木乃伊进入了坟墓 他们把它们放在 你知道 那些致命的地方
take the bodies. The mummies into the cave and they’d put them you know in the fetal
position because they used to believe that they could enter into a different life after
摇摆的新帽子 chuyos 耶 耶 耶
Rocking the new hats. The chuyos. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
所以士兵们很可能用这个来放置火把 火 好
So the soldiers possibly used this to place the torch. The fire. Okay. But also they could
但他们还可能在这里放一个宠物 可能是一个美洲驼 或者是个羊驼
maybe place here a pet which was maybe a llama or this was maybe an alpaca that they would
use to sacrifice in one of the temples.
所以现在我们在查看一个印加厕所 那是个卫生间吗 是的
So here we’re checking out an Inca toilet. Is it an en-suite? I’d say so.
我们在干什么Audrey 拿到我们的马丘比丘标志所以这个是你的 好了
What are we doing Audrey? Getting our Machu Picchu stamp. So this one is yours. Ready.
欢迎来到我的家 这是生活区 还需要点家具
Welcome to my home. This is the living area. It still needs to be furnished. And this over
here is going to be a little reading nook and I’m put my books there, there and there.
Alright, so we found a nice quiet spot here and I want to know your impressions of coming
back to Machu Picchu for a second time?
来第二次了 诚实的讲 它依然让人惊叹 它依然让我印象深刻
Coming back a second time. Honestly, it is still amazing. It is still impressed me. It
still has that ‘wow factor’ like six or seven years later. I think it is just one of those
sites that is I don’t know, so special, and also it always looks different because the
weather here changes so dramatically and it changes so quickly. So like when we first
就像我们早上到这里时它非常凉爽 有雾 我们甚至看不到马丘比丘
got here in the morning it was super cold and foggy and we couldn’t even see Machu Picchu
but now it is like the sun is starting to come out and the sky is starting to clear
所以只是在这里闲逛几个小时 欣赏它的变化 这样真的很爽
so it is really cool just hanging out here for a few hours and seeing how it all changes.
So yeah, I’m glad I came back.
好 Sam 大约6年前 你参观了马丘比丘
Okay, so Sam, you visited Machu Picchu about six years ago, how has does this trip compare
to that one?
This is like night and day. Six years ago I was the ultimate cheapskate backpacker.
I came to Machu Picchu using the cheapest transportation route possible. Basically I
took this van on this really twisty serpentine off-road area and then I went across on this
然后我乘做木吊车时遇见了这辆缆车 那真的很危险 而最终我们
cable car using this wooden trolley. It was really dangerous. And then eventually we did
a bit of walking and took a train to get here. And I was so cheap at the time that they have
these little buses that ply up and down to get up to Machu Picchu. And I was so cheap
步行上下那座大山 然后就像 筋疲力尽了
that I ended up walking up and down that big hill and it was like exhausting. By the time
we actually got to Machu Picchu I was already tired. Yeah, because that is a 25 minute bus
ride. So you were walking that would be a couple of hours. And it is like up like that
so yeah a completely different experience this time around. It was nice to do it using
the actual Inca Trail, staying at a little bit of a nicer accommodation and coming to
see Machu Picchu with a guide this time around.
Okay, so now next question. I know people always see Machu Picchu in documentaries,
在纪录片、明信片和杂志中参观马丘比丘 你认为亲自来一趟很重要吗 是的 绝对是
postcards, magazines. Do you think it is important for people to see it in person? Yeah, absolutely.
It’s actually one of these wonders of the world that actually lives up to its reputation.
而我真正想的是 当我真的离家来到马丘比丘 只是因为这里的雄伟景色
And what I really think, what I really get out of coming to Machu Picchu is just a sense
像这里如此壮观 当你来到这里 四处走走
of the sheer scale of the place. Like it is massive. When you come here and walk around
you get a really good sense of just how big this lost city of the Inca’s is. Woo hoo!
Go Machu Picchu!
