第七十六天:天空之城

我們終於來到馬丘比丘,破曉時分進場看到吞雲吐霧的空中城堡,我只可以說她美得不著邊際,很 surreal. 我和黃Glenn 有點被她的震撼攝呆了 - 背靠兩座山、東西兩邊的山下都以河川相伴,而且城鎮規劃井井有條;由城門開始,沿途有廟宇、祭祀的浴場、皇宮、廣場、天文台,遠處有坐西向東的民宿和收納戰俘的監牢,當然少不了綠油油的梯田讓以務農為主的印加族幹活。

印加城外的梯田

我們從高處遠眺下去,這躲在雲海中的天空之城隨著日出而被層層揭開,我們逐漸看到其神祕面紗背後的真身 - 太了不起了!不愧為新七大奇景!聽說印加皇帝千挑萬選才決定在這裡建城,我和黃Glenn 不禁驚嘆古人的智慧和才幹!在 2,400 米的荒蕪高山上大興土木,談何容易?!

還有那條守城橋!古人是怎樣在那岌岌可危的懸崖峭壁上修路再起橋呢?單是望下去已讓我發軟!我自言自語印加皇帝除了有遠見有謀略外,其人民亦勇氣可嘉。

我慶幸看過的明信片和海報都沒能把馬丘比丘的壯觀好好呈現,讓我們親身來觀賞時沒有幻滅,反而覺著驚喜 - 一秒鐘前還被密雲掩蓋著,下一刻是薄霧,然後陽光普照,忽然又再煙霧瀰漫… 但可以保證的是,在每種天氣下馬丘比丘都教人歎為觀止,她的變幻莫測、她的神秘和背景、她的完整… 她的一切讓我們異常激動和感觸 - 七十多天的旅程,我們有血有汗有迷失,走到今天、來到馬丘比丘,我們只能熱淚盈眶的拋下一句不枉此行!

吞雲吐霧的天空之城

我很想很想很想把愛看古蹟的肥佬和良久沒旅遊的阿肥都帶來,好讓他們親眼一睹這無與倫比的偉大奇景…
