The observation car

Andean Explorer

It's quite sureal to have completed the Inca Trail yesterday, to be grubby & unshaven for 3 days and to now be doing what I am...

I am currently sitting in a leather chair sipping a Pisco Sour, first class riding the famous Andean Explorer from Cusco to Puno.

We are in the observation car at the back of the train at the moment watching the world go by & mulling over the effort & wonder of the last 4 days.

It's lovely to watch the Peruvian countryside roll by...

Our actual assigned seats (not in the observation car) are a little cramped but you can get up and wander around.

We have met a nice couple who are currently on holiday from Walton on Thames & have been swapping stories & sipping cocktails.

Perurail have also decided to put on a mini fashion show for us, of course, to sell the products afterwards.

We pull into Puno & can't quite figure where the ten hours have gone to.

We are staying at the Quelqatani Hotel & tomorrow will be off to the Uros & Taquille islands...
