9/6/2016: Not sure what to do next, I decided on the last minute trip to Machu Picchu. From the train station at Aguas Calientes, I walked up the path to the ruins. This walk was supposed to take 1.5 hours, but it took me three hours. I continued walking to the top of the pass at the Sun Gate. I planned on walking back to town, but the time was getting close for the train, and I was forced to take the bus back into town. Anyway, the train ended up leaving late, so maybe I should have walked. In the end, I finally saw the Torrent Ducks in town near the train station.
