Stuck in Ollantaytambo

Ollantaytambo, Peru

Postcard 1176

If you take the backpacker train to Machu Picchu, you must travel through the town of Ollantaytambo, Peru to catch the train.We arrived with the expectation of being able to hop on a train straight away & visit Machu Picchu the next day. Yeah right, what were we thinking... The next available train was more than 36 hours away so we were "stuck" in Ollantaytambo for nearly two days. To our surprise, this small Incan village was not only gorgeously nestled between 3 mountain peaks, but we arrived in the midst of their annual artisan festival. While there, we were invited by our hostel hosts to participate in the festival and drank the homemade brew (Chicha de Maiz). p.s.: don't drink the Chicha until after Macchu Pichu. Jenneil
