DAY 41 – 2/22/12 MACHU PICCHU

After an early breakfast, we took a $3 sol taxi ride to Estation Won Choq to board our Peru rail bus to Ollantaytambo. The bus ride was comfortable and offered good views, but I must confess, after our late night, I was dozing a bit. The bus ride was from 0645-0810 and our train left at 0915. We bought some pre-made sandwiches and got window seats on the train. The train followed the river from 3400m down to 2000m. After arriving at Agua Caliente, we rode a nerve racking 20 minute bus up a one lane dirt road to the park.

Machu Picchu was spectacular – no other way to describe it.
