Huancayo: the train station

This is the departure point for the highest train line in the world, going to Huancavelica.

But before you go...

a good day sight seeing and shopping trip is to go to:

- Cocha Grande and Cocha Chico: buy carved gourds
- then Hualhuas: buy alpaca goods
- then San Jeronimo: buy silver jewellry

Everything was extremely cheap for goods you will find all over Peru but at twice or three times the price.
