Photographer's Note

Due to the five hours it takes to go from Cusco to Machu Picchu, many tourist opt to arrive there at evening; to spend the night at Machu Picchu town (a.k.a. "Aguas Calientes", the town that blossomed as a result of the tourism); and then to go up the mountain in the morning just to see the citadel from the very sunrise. Tourists are expected by the local population, and many people gathers at the railway in order to offer their services. This image is of some of the last passengers that leaved the train.
