Loving today’s story…
…and totally inspired to go when Kuelap opens to the public!
History geek here too! Yep, this is the kind of thing I’ll bring up in the pub with considerable enthusiasm, only to draw blank stares all round.
I haven’t even been to the first Machu Picchu yet!
I’ve seen a bunch of cool documentaries about Machu Picchu, which really make me want to go, but so far I haven’t ticked it off the list either.
And yeah, now I want to do both as well! 🙂
On the documentary side of things, there was a PBS Nova one called [url=http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/ancient/ghosts-machu-picchu.html rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”]Ghosts of Machu Picchu[/url] which was particularly good. It goes into detail about the drainage system underlying Machu Picchu — which I realise sounds unbelievably dull, but it’s an amazingly complex piece of engineering, which is actually really interesting, to a history nerd anyway…
The whole thing is on YouTube if anyone is interested:

This looks awesome! Id never really thought of going to Peru before but now I really want to! What else is there apart from this and Machu Pichu?
