Near Cusco we stopped to visit this historic archeological site. Not only amazing to walk around and imagine how wonderful to be still here, but just how it was built about a thousand years ago.

From a distance, these stones look like pillows that were laid on top of each other. As you get closer, you see that they are granite or andesite and are 10 to 15 feet high. You cannot fit a piece of paper between them. Some...More
