Peru opened the ruins of Machu Picchu for a single Japanese tourist who has been stranded in Peru since the pandemic struck.
“Jesse Takayama’s entry into the ruins came thanks to a special request he submitted while stranded since mid-March in the town of Aguas Calientes, on the slopes of the mountains near the site,” said Minister of Culture Alejandro Neyra.
“This is truly amazing! Thank you,” Jesse Takayama.
“The first person on Earth who went to Machu Picchu since the lockdown is meeeeeee,” posted Takayama on this Instagram account.
