Machu Picchu has opened after months of coronavirus closure, but for just a single visitor — a Japanese man.
The Japanese boxing instructor, identified by local media as a 26-year-old from Nara, has been stuck in Peru since March when he bought a ticket for the tourist site just days before the country declared a health emergency. Eventually, his plight reached the local tourism authority, which agreed to reopen the site just for him.
