[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken when the sun went down behind the mountains but the light from it still brightens the area of the city of Aguas Calientes. Tourist who walked the distance from Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes are seen here resting and eating their snack foods. This landscape area is in front of our hotel room with the raging waters of Urubamba River beside it.

Aguas Calientes is the colloquial name for Machupicchu Pueblo, a town in Peru on the Urubamba (Vilcanota) River. It is best known as the closest access point to the tourist attraction Machu Picchu, which is 6km away, about 1.5 hours walk. It has many hotels and restaurants for tourists, as well as natural hot baths, which give the town its name ("hot waters" in Spanish). The baths were destroyed by floods several years ago, but have been rebuilt.
