that doesn't look quite "right" with that tiled roof and lighter finish...
note "the windows" (in the old wall) facing directly east -- these were decorated to greet the sun god in the morning (I've read and been told)
We commented among ourselves afterwards that we weren't told what was original and what was restoration. I assumed at the time that the high-up roofs were modern additions to protect the tops of the wall and columns; where there's precedent for them I don't know. But the site was impressive, and apparently round columns (there were many more column bases) and also round are unusual for an Inca site.
I´m glad you like it, Bruce. The architectural forms and the limited color range gave wonderful photographic possibilities, and I´ll post a couple more when I´m home and can do some minor editing. This, of course, is straight out of the camera. Marilyn
