Aug 10-11
Our trip to Machu Pichu was "interesting".  The tour was supposed to include train to Aguas Calientes (town closest to MP) and a hotel there for a night and a train back to Cusco late the next day.  The disorganized tour company however, firstly didnīt make a hotel reservation for us in Aguas Calientes and then only managed to get us train tickets that would allow us to see MP in the afternoon only and come back early the next day... as a result we would have no time to do any extra hiking.  We did convince them to get us a cheap hotel.  The morning we were to depart, a lady from the tour company picked us up 20 minutes late and mistakenly took us to the bus station, not the train station.  After swearing in spanish a bit we got back into a taxi to race to the train station and got on the train one minute before it started moving.  Luckily the train was one minute late too.  After seeing MP (which could have itīs own blog entry) we tried out the hot springs in Aguas Calientes, but they were rather disappointing when we were used to the Banff springs and Radium hot springs.
