1/22/2016. Aguas Caluentes continued

The rest of Aguas Caluentes

We enjoyed the beautiful ride to Aguas Calientes and happy to be there surrounded by the tall cliff like mountains and we could hear the river roaring.  We walked through the market on the way to our hotel.  And saw all the different people selling their goods.

Wayne was looking for a good Peruvian chess set and he found one here.  He and Cory negotiated a price and they bought it.

While they bought the chess set, Sarah and I looked around and found this soft alpaca hat.  Sarah tried it on.

We checked into our hotel which was along the beautiful, raging, and noisey Urubamba river.  It was so neat.

This was taken from Cory and Sarah's window looking up the river.

This was taken looking down the river.

Cory took this picture looking straight down out their window at the river.  It lets you see how close we were to it.

Cory and Sarah were sitting out on the balcony by their room in the common area,  The internet wouldn't work in our rooms.

This is at the Plaza

This is looking up the smaller river that runs through the town.

This picture shows how tall and steep the mountains are.

The bus stop was in the right corner of this picture.  This is where we got on the bus that took up up the mountain to Machu Picchu.

This picture was taken from where our hotel was.  To the right up the hill is where the train station is.

Aguas Calientes was a fun place.  We had a great time there.  The only way to get there is by train or walking, the only vehicles are the buses that take you up to Machu Picchu. It was a cute tourist town. All of the people were there to go see Machu Picchu.

Just before leaving I bought a bell with a Llama on the handle, and two place mats that look Peruvian.  We also bought some Peru playing cards.

We met our tour guide at 6:30 the next morning to ride the bus up to Machu Picchu.
