In the Land of the Incas

 

Week 2: Cuzco, Machu Picchu, and other very high points

Going to Cuzco and Machu Picchu is somewhat like visiting Pompeii, but the Incas are mute. They had no language and no profane art, so despite the fact that the ruins are less than 1000 years old, their artifacts and architecture seem more remote than a site that is a 1000 years older. In a way, it felt good to go to Quito and straddle the equator.
