Peru: Security upped at Machu Picchu over influx of streakers
upi ^ | March. 8, 2014

CUSCO, Peru, Security at the Peruvian historical site of Machu Picchu has been increased after a recent string of streakers invading the centuries-old Inca citadel.

Late last year, guards arrested two male tourists who were caught streaking at the site. More recently, a video of a couple streaking at Machu Picchu went viral on YouTube, prompting others to follow suit, The Guardian newspaper in London reported Friday.

Ricardo Ruiz Caro, Peru's new regional director of culture, announced recently that park guards will increase surveillance to "avoid these unfortunate events that threaten cultural heritage."

Machu Pichu is a really weird place and no place for the handicapped. There are no handrails for the zillions of steps. There are practically no bathrooms and you have to pay to go. You can’t drink the water or you will immediately get sick.

Gee... no wonder the original tenants moved out.

My grandfather was friends with Hiram Bingham and was on the 1915 expedition as anthropologist and Medical Doctor. We have boxes of his original photos. Many are near duplicates of those published in the National Geographic.

The large peak in the background of the first photo is known as the 'Hitching Post of the Sun'.

That's it.

My memory was faulty. I would like to correct an earlier statement. The taller peak on the right is not Intihuatana, 'The Hitching Post of the Sun'. It is actually in the foreground on the left as shown in the following photo.

I grew up on my grandfather's stories of his travels around the world both before and after WWI. Even though he was an American, he served as a doctor in the British Army in the war. His hospital received a personal commendation from King George V. I have the original. He rode the Trans Siberian Railway through the middle of the Russian Civil War. He met my grandmother in China even though he was from Boston and she was from Chicago. I could write a book but he already did.

Nice! I’ll bet your family has had some great conversations about your grandfather’s papers.
