Day 115 Cuzco to Machu Picchu..... sights along the way! (Part 1 of 2)

It was avery early 5:40 pickup at the hotel for our Vistadome train ride to Machu Picchu.....  Almost didn't make it because there was a delay due to landslides on the tracks.  This is a problem that can plague this area during rainy season.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that our train tomorrow goes without a hitch.  It was a lovely train ride, loved all the lush countryside and the people going about their day to day chores....  It was a nice buildup to the main event, Machu Picchu which you can see in (Part 2 of 2).


  1. This is a part of the world I most definitely hope to visit some time in the future. For now ... I'm more than happy to see everything through your eyes. Thanks for keeping up this wonderful blog!

  2. Jeff, Bob and I went to Machu Picchu in the late 80's and on the train ride back to Cuzco, there was a landslide and we spent the night right there on the train on the tracks next to the river.. A crew came and cleared the tracks during the night,-- you would have gotten amazing pictures of it! We were all a day late getting back to Cuzco and then on to Lima. Quite an experience. The joys of traveling. Beachlady

  3. I would like to be there when they lit the huge bonfire that is ready to go in one of your photos. Also I was concerned about the people in the crate truck if a stone is needed to stop it rolling on fairly flat ground. Makes me wonder about the brakes!
