Hidroelectrica, Peru

After a noisy overnight stay in the Santa Teresa nightclub cum campsite, we took the short minivan-ride to Hidroelectrica with Jose, our diminutive cook. After a quick lunch, we all enjoyed the three hour walk along the railway track to Aguas Calientes. 

The town is small and a mere shadow of its former glory before the floods of 1998 when over 80km of railway line was washed away between Aguas Calientes and Quillabamba (a huge coffee-producing town).
