Marching Through History in Miniature
Wow, Jonathan. That must have been quite an experience.-- Jeff
Truly, awe inspiring feats of engineering.
Most impressive. It is sad how limited our knowledge of the Incas is. I enjoyed visiting the Mayan ruins at Tolum and Kohunlich back about 10 years ago.
Very true. We really know little about the culture although they trace history back to what we consider Biblical times. The museums offer great insights into their development.I love visiting the Mayan ruins in the Yucatan, Belize, Honduras, and Guatemala too. Tulum is fantastic sight.
Wow! You are a well-traveled man, Jonathan. A place I've only seen on so many TV documentaries!
Dean, the documentaries really do not do this magnificent place justice. The topography and engineering accomplishments are truly unbelievable. I kept asking myself, how did they do this?
Blimey, that's a nice view for a cafe. Looking forward to the travelogue.
Ha! No cafe nearby. I was simply eating a box lunch with my feet dangling over one of the Incan terraces as I sat on the grass. Shared lunch with a llama or two.
Can't believe my eyes lucky man...enjoy!
Great place, for sure!
Indeed! Although "impressive" is an understatement.
Paul, this is quite a fantastically, unbelievable place to visit.
Seriously they actually have a cafe nearby? What a spectacular view!Christopher
Christopher, no cafe nearby; just eating my box lunch on one of the many Incan agricultural terraces overlooking the main complex.
Wow! Truly awesome!
Quite right on that count, Roger!
Good Heavens Jon, your in Heaven! :o)Lovely view!!
Visiting many of the Incan ruins in the Sacred Valley has been terrific and the food in Peru has been consistently the best of any foreign travel. If not Heaven, it is pretty close.
Amazing, don't tell me this isn't going to inspire some Inca project once you get back to the painting desk ;0)
Inspiration for a new project is certainly a risk one takes when traveling. You know me too well!
You've ticked off an item that should be on everyone's bucket list.
Exactly right! Machu Picchu is a place that photos, videos, and other media cannot quite capture without standing on the ground and witnessing with ones own eyes.Incredible!Have you marked M.P. off YOUR Bucket List? If so, we should compare notes.
