Solstice Sunrise over Machu Picchu
Fiming Date: June 21st, 2007

Years before it was such a well-controlled area, Kathy & I used to visit Machu Picchu twice every year. It is a very magical place… We would spend days wandering and exploring this vast and ancient citadel.
Now, Machu Picchu is roped off and you only have a few hours to complete a visit. Guards are everywhere. Prices are very high there now. It is more an amusement park than a sacred place.
So, before all that, Kathy & I entered Machu Picchu before sunrise on June 21st, the Winter Solstice for South America. We filmed the sunrise to share it with all our friends who couldn’t visit. The music was performed by Kathy and me. We later recorded a local Shaman playing his flute as the sun rose above the Andes. He was paid for his contribution to our film.
We hope you enjoy this one. It always brings back exceptional memories for us both!
