Machu Picchu and Aguas Calientes
Travelogue for Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos
I liked Aquas Calientes for its simplicity, but unique architecture surrounded by high mountains and constant flow of waterfalls, springs and rivers. At our hotel, INKATERRA, a hotel guide took us around the orchid garden. The variety of sizes, shapes and colors are amazing and who would believe that are so many different orchids. This was a true additional unexpected treat to our trip. The train ride back through the winding Urubamba Valley with the mountains and fast moving rivers with the on board entertainment and fashion show made the journey exciting.
