... on the train to Machu Picchu (which would cost us more than the 4 day trip that was being canceled).
We opted to take our money back and sort out our own trip to Machu Picchu instead. Our hostel was really good, we changed our booking and moved a booked day from next week to tomorrow night. We then bought our train tickets with Peru Rail so we will still be in Machu Picchu on Tuesday as planned. We don't want to mess up our onward travel into Bolivia.
... on the road, very little patience amongst the drivers and lots, lots, lots of beeping horns. Driving to Milaflores even though it was dark I got a feel for Lima; the houses are often one-story, tiny, and look quite run down to the Western eye, although I suspect very normal for Peru. I arrived at my hostel and went straight to bed after a long 24 hours of travel. I had one full day in Lima and I was keen to see the Mario Testino exhibition which was just a few stops away on ...
... there on time. The taxi situation in Cuzco was the same as Lima, except this time I found a guy who would take 5sol to go a further distance.

We grouped up with the 2 English girls and met Estesh, one of the daughters of our family for the night. She led us up the hill and past the mud brick house ...
Monday evening I attended a talk on the history of Machu Picchu by Paolo Greer, the guy from the weekend hike. It was really interesting - he has a lot of theories that often don´t tally with the official line on things, but you´d be hard pressed to find someone who has researched the topics more thoroughly, so I´m inclined to believe him. For anyone planning on visiting Machu Picchu, I´d recommend reading some of his stuff / attending one of his talks before you go.
