I am going to volunteer in Huancayo for about 6 weeks (www.volunteersharingdreamsperu.org/ Just in case anyone has heard of it) I need some guidance on travelling and what to see please.
Im flying in from the UK and was thinking about arriving in Lima and getting the train to Huancayo it sounds like an amazing trip. I no doubt will need an overnight in Lima. I think I have found the train informaiton but I cant check dates - http://www.ferrocarrilcentral.com.pe Is this the only website It looks like it is only running on 10th and 27th August - or if I do the trip the other way around its October 5th is that right ? I cant get it in English.
How do I get back to Cusco ?
As I said I could do the trip the other way around.
I will check out other forums re the visit to MP - I dont want a long trek just a day trip
Unusually for me I will be travelling alone .. and my Spanish is at the most basic level
any help gratefully recieved.
