Nails Wanted On Machu Picchu Coincidence

Machu Picchu

...and following on from yesterday's post, another one:

My husband owned an ironmongers shop and I worked with him. One year we went on holiday to Peru and travelled to Machu Picchu, which we visited on a very rainy day.

Our group was climbing up very steep steps slowly, and stepped aside to make room for another group coming down the steps.

Suddenly a man grabbed my arm and, as he passed me said, "Three pounds of 4 inch round nails please, Mrs Potts," before disappearing downhill.

So far from home in the rain ... but who was he?

We would have loved it if he had come into the shop to tell us afterwards.

  1. What an odd story! This is the kind of stuff that happens when you travel.

  2. He seems like the kind of man who'd be fun to take a trip with.
