Going to Peru to do Machu Picchu soon?

Then make it via the Inca Trail, cos the train is out of action for two months, according to El Comercio today. Above photo from here

It must have been tough for the cossetted gringo tourists to have had to experience what Peru minus comfy transport, plentiful food and warm beds is really like...FOR TWO WHOLE DAYS, TOO! Poor souls. Mind you, the other side of Peru was in evidence too, as two Chilean tourists stuck there told how they paid a U$300 bribe to their travel agency to get them out on one of the helicopter rescue flights before the supposed first flyers of elderly and sick. Viva investment grade, baby....
