We take a train at Ollantaytambo station and head towards the small town of Aguas Calientes. The train runs west along the Urubamba River.
Aguas Calientes (Spanish, hot waters or hot springs) also known Machupicchu (Quechua, old peak of prominent mountain) is located in the Urubamba Province, Cusco Region. It is the seat of the Machupicchu District. the town lies at the Urubamba River. It has a population of 1,600 inhabitants.
According to the legend, the last Emperor Túpac Amaru of the Inca was executed and he became a condor and flew away.
The statue of Pachacuti is in the center of the square. Pachacuti was 9th Sapa Inca (Emperor) of Cusco Kingdom.
Left the parish church, we were walking to the booked hotel, Casa del Sol Machupicchu – Boutique Hotel. It is located in near the folk craft market.
Took a rest at the hotel and after supper I went out for a night walk alone.
I am returning to the hotel, it is time to go to bed. I will go to the Machu Picchu Ruins next morning. Buenas noches.
(A huge amount of photographs and descriptions of Machu Picchu Ruins are on the net. That is why I will skip the blog of Machu Picchu Ruins.)
