Another lovely photo from your really interesting series. Thank you for taking us with you on holiday. I can't wait for our next trip. ;)

Marilyn Whiteley on June 11, 2008

Thank you, picsonthemove, Giulio, Eva, and skida, for your comments. I wish you could have explored more of this remarkable site with me!

picsonthemove, I recognized too late the perspective and distance in this shot!

skida, "our" next distant trip is still in the dreaming stages. We're quite busy until November catching up on things that have been crowded out by travel. But we spend summers in a beautiful area of the USA. I hope you'll enjoy seeing more of it!

Greetings from Canada, Marilyn

What a wanderer you are Marilyn -- once again I enjoy the fruits of your travels.

Daniela Brocca on June 11, 2008

That is interesting,Marilyn.I did not know it.What about the roofs?

As I see in all the photos from South America you had almost always beautiful weather.

cheers,Daniela

Marilyn Whiteley on June 11, 2008

Thank you, Bruce and Daniela. Daniela, I was glad our tour guide knew about this because we didn't, and it is an impressive site--the tallest known Inca walls still standing, I believe, and lots more that I didn't photograph or at least haven't posted. (If you zoom in on the map, you can get some idea of the site.)

No exotic travel for a while, Bruce. We have to catch up on things at home and at our summer place in Wisconsin, and we have some obligations in the fall. But we've started talking ...

Cheers, Marilyn

Well captured Marilyn. What an impressive place this must have been at it's prime. I take it the roof structures are there to protect the walls from further weather erosion? :)

Best regards, Tom

Marilyn Whiteley on June 13, 2008

Thanks, Tom; I always appreciate your comments. Yes, I believe that's why these walls have roofs.

Best wishes, Marilyn

Fantastic perspective, Marilyn, these ruins are so impressive. Cheers Annick

Marilyn Whiteley on June 14, 2008

Thank you, Annick. I'm glad if this captures something of the powerful impression of the place. Cheers, Marilyn
