Ciarán & Elaine's Travelog

Thursday, October 13, 2005


Got up at 5am this morning to get the train to Aguas Caliente. From here we have a two day tour up to Machu Picchu booked.

When we arrived at the train station there was chaos with hundreds of people standing around shouting in Spanish. Unfortunately our 20 words of Spanish wasn´t quite enough to figure out what was going on. Eventually we discovered that there had been a landslide on the train line during the night. About 500 metres of the train line was completely covered and a bridge had been wiped out. This wouldn´t be such a problem except there are no roads to Aguas Calliente you have to travel there by train.

Re-booked the trip for next Wednesday, hopefully the line will be open by then...
