Peru Plans in Peril

So it turns out the day after I book my trip, there is a huge mudslide that takes out the railroad leading up to Machu Picchu.

Over 2,000 tourists were stranded in the ruins and at least five people were killed.

It took multiple days for helicopters to reach tourists and helped the old and young first. This meant that many middle age tourists had to sleep on the ground since many hotels jacked up their prices. So uncool.

What this means for me? Hopefully, my rail tickets and expensive hotel don't go to waste. I have until 15 days before I leave to get a refund on the hotel so it's just a waiting game now.

I'll keep you posted!
