Peru: A Train to the Clouds

A train departs the coastal mega city of Lima, Peru bound for the highlands once a month. The railroad passes through numerous tunnels and over trestles along the way, crowning out at nearly 16,000 feet elevation. Host Dave Yetman hops on the train to head to the indigenous city of Huancayo, high on the Altiplano of the Andes and as different from Lima as any two cities in the world.
