Location: Aguas Calientes

 

Author: HilaLocation: Aguas CalientesEveryday there is a chance to learn and experience new things. Today we left the hotel pretty late, which meant we got to sleep in. We were on our way to Aguas Calientes, home to Machu Picchu. We took a train, and I saw the most spectacular views. This was my first time on a train that wasn’t a subway, and that was pretty cool. We arrived at noon and checked into our hostel. We dropped our bags and went to lunch. I ordered a crepe with cheese and tomatoes. I expected it to be really good but it was just okay. That made me pretty sad since I love food. Next, we had the options to shop in the market or go to the hot springs. I chose the springs. Only one of the pools were hot but it was still pretty great. It smelled like sulfur and everyone complained but I loved it. After the hot springs we got back to the hotel and had a discussion about religion and government and it was pretty interesting. Later we had pizza and it was pretty good. I got my food first. That made me happy because I didn’t have to wait. After, we went back to the hostel and went to bed since we had to wake up early the next day. Tomorrow’s destination: Machu Picchu!
