Around 7am they serve breakfast. The train included something called the Inti Raymi breakfast, haha. We had already had breakfast, but it was at 4:30am!!! This breakfast had assorted breads, muffin, cheese, ham and beverages. Eric and the Swiss guy got juice and I got a cup of coca tea. I didn't have hunger, just wanted to drink something warm :)
During the whole ride you can see how the landscape changes.
Also in Ollantaytambo you can see terraces from the Inca times, but they are still being used by the local farmers. When you do the Inca Trail, you usually start the trekking here. Crossing an inca bridge, which I recognized :) The landscape becomes more and more green while you are getting closer to Aguas Calientes which practically belongs to the Rain Forest.
All the passengers woke up so early to catch the train, that I'm pretty sure that at some point everyone was sleeping, haha. Who couldn't fall asleep if you are surrounded by such a beautiful scenery? :)
