My trip of Peru lasted for ten days! After flying from Atlanta, to Orlando, to Ft. Lauderdale, to Lima, to Cusco, I took a two hour collectivo to Ollantaytambo. This is a small, local town with a few historical landmarks. There’s also a lot of vendors that you can buy touristy things from.
I caught the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes around 9pm. When I arrived, there was a concert in the main plaza and fireworks going off. I wanted to enjoy it, but I had been sleeping in airports off and on for more than 24 hours. I decided to go straight to my hostel and get as much sleep as I could before my journey to Machu Picchu the next day.
