We decided we were done hiking and had seen what we wanted to of Machu Picchu, so we headed back to Ollantaytambo on the 10:30AM train. Bruno picked us up and we headed back to Cusco. It seemed like a long time had passed, but it was really only four days. It felt like weeks. Being in the mountains was just so peaceful and magical.
We arrived in Cusco in the early afternoon. We said farewell to Alex and headed to our room. We took showers and put on clean clothes. Ah, the luxury!
