High up in the Andes
From Cusco we hoped onto a train to Aguas Calientes it started to rain and we thought about Dad the whole train trip because he was going to run the Inca trail as an event which was 42KM. We walked to our Hotel dropped our bags and explored the town.
The next day Mum fell ill which was really annoying because we couldn’t do more exploring. So we played cards and did indoor activities. In the meantime Dad was doing his race Mum's friend Anna (Her husband Ben also did the race) told mum that Dad finished the event and came 4th and on the track it was snowing, hailing and raining and we were really excited that we were going to see dad! That terrible day turned out to be a great day. The next day we went to Machu Picchu and explored the ruin. They were amazing there was Wayna Picchu at the back looking down over these ancient ruins. It is a strange location to build a wonder of the world. With cliffs Drops that you can fall to your death. There are rivers at the bottom and big Mountains with snow on top of them. The building are spectacular we even got to go in them you can see where they slept and where they put their statues and prized possessions. It was amazing being at one of the 7 wonders of the world which we will never forget! We took the train back to Cusco for our Next stop the Amazon.
