[quote]According to the Peruvian Times, "All foreign visitors to Machu Picchu will soon have to hire an official guide to enter the Inca Citadel, follow one of three predetermined routes through the complex and face time limits at specific points to keep the traffic flowing, under new rules promulgated by the Ministry of Culture in Cusco." [/quote]

This would be sad that respectful tourists will soon no longer be able to roam freely around MP due to the unfortunate actions of some stupid tourists.
