|This morning we boarded a train for Aguas Calientest (Hot springs),which is also the base town for most people going to Machu Pichu. The train ride was awesome,through the mountains with lots of scenery...including a view of all people hiking the inca trail...we did enjoy the comfort of our train, but felt slightly guilty that we weren't making the 3 day hike ourselves. When we arrived in the town , it was pretty clear it was simply a town built around the train station and people going to and coming from Machu Pichu. We had lunch and shopped abit, then it was pouring all afternoon so Kim and I locked ourselves in our rooms so that we couldn't shop, and to rest up for then 4am wake up the next day for Machu Pichu!!!!
