In through the Backdoor of Machu Picchu - Part Three

After a two and a half hour hike along the tracks, we finally came to the small, incredibly touristy jungle town of Aguas Calentes. It was late and the town was still. I saw this chef putting back his kitchen utensils as he cleaned up for the night. After much discussion and debate, we opted not to poach the famous Incan ruins and paid 120 soles for the entrance fee. Still we were getting there cheaper than any other tourist that slept in the town that night. We found a cheap hostel and passed out in anticipation of an early morning hike to the summit.
