After a comfortable night we had to get up pretty early in order to prepare some sandwiches for the way, get the Dodge ready in order to be alone for a couple of days, and even re-park it to the other side of the parking lot as we were warned about avalanches… With the combi we made a short stop in the village to find more people to share the price with & we got to enjoy a fresh juice and orange cake for breakfast.
As we arrived in Hydroelectrica we got ready to hit the train tracks by foot for the next 3 hours. Already in the beginning of the hike we met a lonesome dog who decided to walk together with us – until he became unfaithful during our break and decided to follow some other hikers… funnily we kept meeting this dog over and over again during our stay in Aguas Calientes and on our way back to Hydroelectrica
Finally in Agaus Calientes we barely made it to the market where we got the cheapest lunch in the town – still twice the price as in Cusco… And not only food, but also accommodation is much more than in other destinations. For the first time we decided to stay in a hostel and not in a private room in a Hospedaje – the price was the same, but the hostel seemed really cool, stylish and the people super friendly. So anyone who ever goes to Aguas Calientes: stay at the ‘Super Tram Hostel’, it’s a good choice
