Adventures in Cusco Peru ~Saqsaywaman ~ Inca Ruins


Saqsaywaman



The Inca people were an agricultural people.  


Because of this, they monitored the heavenly bodies.


Many of their structures line up with sunrises, sunsets, and other celestial bodies.


Their architecture is amazing.  The ability to cut, move, and fit stones,


of such great size, 


without the use of modern equipment is astounding.


Truly an amazing feat.


The sun festival is held in this large grassy area.


Don't you love the Llamas and Alpacas?


Though it's difficult to tell the difference between the two, there are a few distinguishing features.


Size:  Llamas are much larger.
Fur:  Alpacas have much softer fur.
Ears: Llamas have banana shaped curved ears.
