The picture here is of a ticket line at Ollantaytambo Train Station. Note that I was dumb enough to actually go to Machu Picchu on a Sunday to stay overnight and enter on a Monday. That was a bad idea. Sundays are a “free day” for Peruvians or at least those people living in the area. It appeared that they not only got a free entrance to Machu Picchu but they got free train tickets, or very, very discounted tickets by showing an ID to the local ticket office. That’s what I witnessed. It made for a heck-of-a-line. My advise is to go to Machu Picchu on a weekday.
