... people is awakening, walking through the main plaza, grinding corn for flour to make their breakfasts, bathing in the communal fountains, taking bags of llama wool to the market. It's amazing that pieces of this world still exist, so long after the demise of the society that made it up. The fact that I walked down streets that were built over 500 years ago, that I paused to rest on a stone used for sacrifices to gods that have been long forgotten, that I listened to echoes in a ...
