What is it like to visit the famous Peruvian site of Machu Picchu?

I really enjoy visiting new countries and have now managed to see a total of 73. Foreign travel is an opportunity to experience different cultures and visit wonderful locations. But I am aware that some popular tourist locations are now becoming overwhelmed.

Today there is a story in the “Guardian” about opposition the building of an airport near the site of Machu Picchu in Peru to enable more tourists to more easily visit this fabulous location.

I can understand why people what to see Machu Picchu but I am concerned at the impact of an airport at the suggested location. What is it like to visit this site? I was fortunate enough to go there 18 years ago and you can read my account here.
