    ... the construction is the way it has withstood centuries of heavy seasonal rain - approximately 70 inches falls between November and April. The whole site is an engineering marvel that leaves intriguing hints about this impressive civilisation.

Perhaps the Incas would have developed a system of writing and we would have a much better understanding of their life and ...
