Location: Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes
Today we went on a Peru Rail train to go to Aguas Calientes (Hot Waters in English). The town we stayed in was near Machu Picchu. Once we settled into our new hotel, we all walked to the hot springs, which give the town its name. Not only were the hot springs incredibly relaxing, but we also got to socialize with people from all over the world.
After the hot springs, we went to lunch and enjoyed a great buffet. Also, we enjoyed shopping for a few hours later in the day. We got many great souvenirs and gifts for family and friends.
The town we were in was pretty touristy, but we had a great time! We had a good dinner after a long, fun day. We are incredibly excited for Machu Picchu tomorrow!
