        ... coincides with the Day of the Dead celebrations and it also celebrates the legendary Manco Capac, the Inca who surfaced from Lake Titicaca to found the Inca empire. It was a feat of endurance for some, as the way was long and they were meant to go to the town square - too far for us to walk back! Many of the traditional dancers were quite old and mostly women.

The men do knitting as it is easier and has a fraction of the designs to remember! This was not as interesting as the floating islands, ...

        ... Philosophy which trained a generation of American intellectuals in the ideas of the Prussian thinkers Kant and Hegel, the man who gave America scientifically age-graded classrooms to replace successful mixed-age school practice. Again, from The Philosophy of Education, Harris sets forth his gloomy vision:
