    " Hello Church!
    I hope all is well for you this fine friday, July 20th. Here are a few updates to pass along.
    2.) Pat called to say that the team made it to Pucallpa, Peru. The people there have been very receptive. The team is staying in a retreat center/camp ground area (pretty nice place) and trying out authentic Peruvian food. Last evening was the first of several nights of large crusades. Usually the attendance builds, and last evening about 5,000 people came. About 1500 people responding to the call for salvation. After prayer/ministry many people came up to testify of the healing they just received. Many more were touched by the Lord but could not go to the front because of the crush of the crowd. God is using the people on the team in great ways!!! Saturday morning the team will participate in the maiden voyage of a 3 story boat. They will travel 2 hrs up the Amazon river to the headwaters, swim, and visit/preach to an indigenous tribe that lives in that area. Please pray for continued health, favor, protection and anointing for the team-- and many people to come to the Lord! Please pray also for the families of the team members :)

  • Flooding traps 21 Minn. college students in Peru by Toni Randolph, Minnesota Public Radio January 27, 2010

  • " St. Peter, Minn. — A group of Gustavus Adolphus College students and faculty members are among those awaiting evacuation in Peru after mudslides swept an area near Machu Picchu.
    The college in St. Peter says in a news release Wednesday that 21 students and two faculty members are on a study abroad course examining social issues in the country.
    Gwen Freed, a spokeswoman for Gustavus Adolphus, said college officials have spoken with trip leader Debra Pitton who said the group is doing well.
    "It was good to talk with her personally and hear from her that they have food and water and that they are staying in a hotel and that under the circumstances, their spirits are really fine," Freed said. "The students have been very supportive of one another and are showing a lot of patience and fortitude waiting for their turn to leave the area."
    Helicopters have been flying out groups of people, but it's not clear when the students will leave.
    Authorities in Peru say about 1,400 travelers remain stranded since Sunday's mudslides damaged sections of the railway to the city of Cuzco - the only way in or out of the area. "

    "(Quechua: puka hallpa, "red earth") is a busy Amazon frontier town in Peru, which sits on the banks of the Ucayali River, a major tributary which feeds the Amazon River. Pucallpa is the capital of the Ucayali region and has more than 200,000 citizens. Pucallpa is 155 metres above sea level."

    "Pucallpa is the only one of the low jungle cities that is easily accessibly by road, which probably explains why it has become the fastest growing city in Peru. Many people have moved to the city from the highlands, taking advantage of what they perceive to be a highly fertile area, although this mass migration has generally resulted in many shantytowns growing up on the edge of Pucallpa. The city is incredibly noisy, with mototaxis zooming around. However, activity completely stops at lunchtime, and everybody takes a siesta. The city is probably the most commercial of all the jungle towns in Peru, and there is much logging activity, some illegal."

  • "The quake left over 600 people dead and more than 10,000 wounded, according to the U.N. At least 16,000 homes were completely destroyed. Many roads in mountain areas are broken, which makes the relief operations extremely difficult. Government officials have asked Samaritan's Purse to take over administration of aid in this region.
    In the most-affected areas, many people are living in the open in cold weather, with no access to food and clean drinking water.
    Compounding matters, HCJB Global's Sheila Leech says the hospital in the region where they're working was completely destroyed by the quake. The problems were made worse by the lack of a field hospital. "We have not been able to do surgery. We've been setting bones out in the open air on the patio of the house or in the small little room at the side of the house where we're working on the patio." However, the team was able to address some of the medical needs of between 230 and 250 patients.
    Leech says their medical team is headed to some of the isolated areas crippled by looters. "The people there were telling us that they have not received any aid, and they are afraid to come to where we are in San Clemente because they are afraid of looting; they cannot leave their homes."
    Leech says teaming with the church will help their outreach to the community. "Samaritan's Purse has been setting up community kitchens in all of these places through the local church, and we'll be complimenting their services by offering healthcare to the people in those areas."
    Samaritan's Purse is also providing enough materials for 700 temporary shelters. Teams will build one shelter using the plastic and bamboo framing, and then train local people and provide materials and tools for them to build shelters in their areas.
    Pray that God will meet the physical and spiritual needs of the earthquake victims. Pray, too, for safety and wisdom for the teams. Click here if you can help."
    Killer earthquake rocks Peru, Christians respond Posted: 17 August, 2007 from Mission Network News
    "Many people were killed in the rubble of their homes, and some 300 people were in a cathedral when it collapsed. Emergency workers said the overall death toll is expected to rise as workers pour through the rubble.
    Ica was blacked out, as were smaller towns along the coast south of Lima. Rescue workers reported difficulty getting to Ica because of cracks in the highway and downed power lines. A cathedral in the hard-hit port city of Pisco was destroyed, according to local media reports, which said some 300 people were inside the structure during a mass at the time of the earthquake.
    World Vision has work in Peru, says the organization's disaster operations specialist, Rose Kimeu. "We are supporting almost 20 development programs. And, we have about 20,000 children that we are supporting. The good news is that we received confirmation that all of our children are safe and that they're doing well."
    However, Kimeu says they're concerned about many others who have been affected. "We that some people are still trapped. The roads are collapsed and it's still very hard to know what the real damage is."
    World Vision, an international Christian humanitarian organization, is working with the government of Peru as needs are assessed, and has supply trucks loaded and ready to deliver clothes and other materials to keep warm those who have lost their homes. In the hours since the initial earthquake, more than 100 aftershocks have ensued, some measuring up to 6.3 on the Richter scale.
    "The greatest needs right now are for blankets and warm clothing," said Yadira Pacheco, World Vision's communication manager in Peru. "It is winter season here."
    "Hospitals are at capacity. It is important that people get medical supplies," Pacheco reports.
    Kimeu says with World Vision already working on the ground, it gives them credibility. She says their testimony speaks loudly. "It is very reassuring for them and they know that they're not forgotten them because [World Vision] comes and provides them with support and through this support they're able to see the love of God."

  • The Night the Andes Shook, By LUCIEN CHAUVIN/LIMA Thu Aug 16, 12:40 PM ET (

  • "Lima's 8 million residents must have felt divine providence was at play, because the massive, 7.9-magnitude earthquake that shook Peru for more than two minutes caused the capital only cosmetic damage and one fatality. But closer to the quake's epicenter, some 85 miles southeast of Lima, the scene was far more hellish. Pisco, a city of 116,000 in Ica province, suffered the worst damage and most of the 450 deaths and more than 1,000 injuries that Peru's Civil Defense Institute have so far reported. "We are coordinating an air bridge to bring the largest number of injured people to Lima and to avoid overrunning the hospitals in Ica," said President Alan Garcia in an address to the nation before traveling with cabinet ministers to the epicenter zone early Thursday to initiate relief efforts. He declared a 60-day state of emergency in Ica and the southern province of Canete.
    While the number of dead is high, authorities recognize that the damage from this and other recent earthquakes could have been much greater if the seismic movement had been centered closer to major urban areas. During his address, President Garcia thanked "Almighty God" for sparing Peru the tragedy caused by earlier earthquakes, such as the one in May 1970 in the central Andes that killed around 70,000 people. Similar earthquakes elsewhere, such as the one that hit Pakistan and India nearly two years ago, killed 73,000 people and left more than 100,000 injured."


  • The Lines of Nazca Peru,

  • "..In the Peruvian Desert, about 200 miles south of Lima, there lies a plain between the Inca and Nazca (sometimes also spelled Nasca) Valleys. Across this plain, in an area measuring 37 miles long and 1-mile wide, is an assortment of perfectly-straight lines, many running parallel, others intersecting, forming a grand geometric form. In and around the lines there are also trapezoidal zones, strange symbols, and pictures of birds and beasts all etched on a giant scale that can only be appreciated from the sky.
    The figures come in two types: biomorphs and geoglyphs. The biomorphs are some 70 animal and plant figures that include a spider, hummingbird, monkey and a 1,000-foot-long pelican. The biomorphs are grouped together in one area on the plain. Some archaeologists believe they were constructed around 200 BC, about 500 years before the geoglyphs.
    There are about 900 geoglyphs on the plain. Geoglyphs are geometric forms that include straight lines, triangles, spirals, circles and trapezoids. They are enormous in size. The longest straight line goes nine miles across the plain. ..

  • Nazca Lines Peru

  • Nazca Lines From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • "...are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. They were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. The high, arid plateau stretches more than 80 kilometres (50 mi) between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumana about 400 km south of Lima. Although some local geoglyphs resemble Paracas motifs, scholars believe the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca culture between 400 and 650 AD.[1] The hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, llamas, and lizards.
    The lines are shallow designs made in the ground by removing the ubiquitous reddish pebbles and uncovering the whitish ground beneath. Hundreds are simple lines or geometric shapes; more than seventy are zoomorphic designs of animals such as birds, fish, llamas, jaguar, monkey or human figures. Other designs include phytomorphic shapes such as trees and flowers. The largest figures are over 200 metres (660 ft) across. Scholars differ in interpreting the purpose of the designs, but in general they ascribe religious significance to them.
    The geometric ones could indicate the flow of water or be connected to rituals to summon water. The spiders, birds, and plants could be fertility symbols. Other possible explanations include: irrigation schemes or giant astronomical calendars.[2]
    Due to the dry, windless, and stable climate of the plateau and its isolation, for the most part the lines have been preserved. Extremely rare changes in weather may temporarily alter the general designs...

  • Researcher claims vast network of prehistoric civilization discovered near Lake Titicaca March 1, 2009 · 11:32 am More evidence that the Nephilim walked the earth! (Gen 6)

  • "..According to Inca legend, Lake Titicaca was revered as the location where the god Viracocha created a race of giants and later, the first humans. The Inca maintained that the giants built Tiahuanaco and also many other cities and structures in the area. However, due to their great evil, Viracocha destroyed the giants in a world flood. This legend is still believed by the local Indian inhabitants to this day. ...
    *see Science: Geology
    "The geoglyphs covering this area also exhibit extreme age. In areas where ice age sediment surrounding hills and mountains has been eroded by rain and wind, patterns carved into the bedrock underneath the sediment has been exposed, suggesting their creation sometime before the last glacial melt near the end of the Pleistocene era, c. 13,000 years ago.....
    At an average of 12,500 feet above sea level, most of the shapes and patterns are located in areas that have not been conducive for growing crops for the last 10,000 years. Their creation would have required an immense workforce laboring for hundreds of years in such thin air that altitude sickness was a real danger… literally, a super human effort. Additionally, recent high-resolution satellite images suggest that most of the features are characteristic of religious and ritualistic forms of pre-Incan art. They may even represent a sophisticated yet unknown form of communication.
    The Nazca lines in Peru are perhaps one of the closest analogues to the geoglyphs at Titicaca. Both the Nazca lines and the Titicaca geoglyphs seem to embody a system of thought unlike any in modern times. Their exact purpose and method of construction remains unclear. However, many of the geoglyphs of Lake Titicaca were created by whole scale excavation of entire mountainsides at altitudes of over 14,000 feet above sea level where as the Nazca lines were etched superficially into the desert at low altitude near the Pacific coast. ....

  • "The Inca capital was Cusco, but the Spanish founded Lima in 1535 along the coast and made it their capital. The Spanish preferred the lowland coast because of the climate and for trade links to Spain. The western seaboard is desert, where rain seldom falls. Lima is an oasis containing more than a quarter of Peru's population�most of European descent or mestizo. The Andean highlands occupy about a third of the country and contain mostly Quechua-speaking Indians. Quechua was the language of the Inca Empire. East of the Andes lies a sparsely populated jungle; the major city of this region is Iquitos. Iquitos can be reached by ocean-going vessels coming 3,700 kilometers (2,300 miles) up the Amazon River; recent oil discoveries have brought more people."

  • Peru 1979,

  • "The Amazon River, one of the great wonders of the world, is longer than the next seven largest rivers of the world put together. The Mississippi, the Congo, the Nile, the Ganges, all could fit inside the Amazon. The volume of water is so much that 400 miles out into the Atlantic Ocean you can still drink the water.
    From Iquitos, Peru, to the mouth of the Amazon is almost 4,000 miles, yet the river drops only about 400 feet in that distance. It is almost flat. Ocean going ships can go all the way to Iquitos, three-fourths of the way across the South American continent. Most of the boats, however, are local. They are long and narrow. It is the transportation system in place of roads. The boats carry people, cows, pigs, coconuts, bananas... everything imaginable.
    There are thousands of birds of every sort, huge fish weighing up to 500 pounds. And, here and there, villages dot the banks of the Amazon.
    I felt led by the Lord to take the cross down the great flowing river. I flew into Iquitos with my daughter, Gina, and friend, Mike Ooten. We bought a boat from some Indians. It would carry 150 people. We paid only $1000 for it.
    We converted it inside so that four people could sleep. It was complete with mosquito netting, a stove, and two 12 horse- power motors that we purchased in Iquitos. The boat was 55 feet long and 12 feet wide. The registered name was "Recieo" but we called it "The Holy Floater." We mounted the cross on the front, and then I would take it off and carry it around the river villages, pass out gospel material, preach, and then move on to the next village by way of the boat. I always had a local guide because the river is so big with so many lakes that you can get lost for days. Also, you needed someone who knows where the villages are located. The guides also served as interpreters.
    We faced many difficult problems with paper work trying to register the boat with the authorities. At long last “The Captain of the Port" approved everything and we had our papers for the boat and we were ready to go down the Amazon. Glory.
    We had no real experience with a 55-foot boat on the fast moving waters of the Amazon. One day Mike and I took the boat out for a test run. The boat took off fine as we headed downstream. But with the current so fast we almost crashed into another boat. We turned around but with one motor we could not go upstream! At full power we were headed down the Amazon not up the Amazon! What could we do? Gina was left standing on the riverbank and we are on the way to Brazil! Ha!
    Soon we learned that when we got in calm waters away from the swift currents going around the river corners we could make progress upstream. Several hours later we made it back. We knew we should get a second motor and that we did!
    The other decision we had to make was to get a guide. The Amazon River is so big and has many lakes and rivers we needed some one who knows the river and could also speak English and Spanish. We found a wonderful man to go with us to Colombia.
    Before we left Iquitos we had a wonderful crosswalk in the city and out to the area where the people live in houses built over the water. The people were very responsive and crowded around the cross. Many prayed to receive and follow Jesus as Savior and Lord.
    The following are a few excerpts about this trip from my diary:
    It began on a star-filled, full moon night along the Amazon River in Peru. The night air was cool after a hot day and in the late night, Gina, my lovely 15 year-old daughter, Mike Ooten, my friend and companion, and I decided to take a swim. The awesome adventure of taking the cross by boat down the Amazon River lay ahead. The presence of the Lord was so real as we swam and basked in the beauty of nature, reflecting the creative glory of God.
    Back in the room I began to read from the book of Samuel in the Bible. "And I will raise me up a faithful priest that will do according to that which is in my heart and in my mind, and I will build him a sure house and he shall walk before mine anointed forever." I Samuel 2:35. These words seemed to leap inside of me.
    I always study a special part of the Bible on every trip, for ever as others are blessed, I too hunger and thirst for all the fullness of God and His word. Flashing through my mind was the fellowship God had in the Garden with Adam and Eve. God walked with them, spoke and listened as they enjoyed Paradise together. God enjoyed the ultimate of His creation, made for eternal union with God, but the horror of sin came. Oh, how God must still want the fellowship with us.
    After our study I lay in the bed praying, "Lord, if there is anything you'd like to say tonight, you can speak whatever is in your heart and in your mind and I will do it for Thy glory."
    Words cannot express the passion in my heart for God to reveal His thoughts. An invitation. God had told me to invite Him to reveal Himself afresh. It was 2:00 in the morning as I went to sleep. At 3:00 I was suddenly awake. My watch was showing the time as I lay in my room. It was like I could see far beyond the room into distant outer space, beyond everything we knew there. A distant glow growing closer and closer, past all of the galaxies coming toward earth, growing larger and larger as this bright rolling, swirling glow (all the colors of brightness, like red, gold, yellow, orange), sweeping toward the earth. Swirling not from the top to the bottom like ocean waves, but from the bottom to the top. It was like a fiery stream coming closer and closer. I tried to cry out but was speechless. I could not move. The mighty wind of the golden glory was rushing in. I was being caught away. There was a host of people and angels just beyond the golden swirl of glory. The brightness just behind the glory was blinding... silver and ultra-white, then the words before my eyes, "Arthur, proclaim the glory of the coming of the Lord is at hand."
    Those words stayed before my eyes the entire vision. It was the coming of the glory of the Lord, the glory swept over the earth, leaving it white, sparkling clean behind, then into my room and swept over me just by inches and then it would recede and return again and again. From the bottom of my feet to the top of my head like ocean waves, the glory swept over me.
    After an hour Gina heard me groaning and woke up. I could not speak for a while, but finally said to her and Mike, "Can't you see the glory of the Lord? Look! Look!" But they could not see anything. I crawled out of bed, over to Mike's bed, putting my hand upon his eyes. I said, "Lord, Lord, open his eyes and let him see like Elijah's servant in the Bible."
    But Mike said, "... Nothing."
    I sat on the floor and prayed, "Lord, I don't need a vision. I love you. I will follow you. I don't want to get off preaching Jesus into something else...."

This accursed designation is bestowed on the children of victims of the former terrorist regime. Fausta has learned of her mothers past and her own pre-supposed fate through invented song, which is both an art form and oral history tradition. Upon her mothers death, she must venture beyond the safety of her uncles home and choose whether or not to lend her gift of song to pay for a proper burial.

  • Isolated Peru tribe makes uncomfortable contact Associated PressBy FRANK BAJAK | Associated Press – 7 hrs ago (Wednesday, February 1st 2012)

  • "LIMA, Peru (AP) — Peruvian authorities say they are struggling to keep outsiders away from a clan of previously isolated Amazon Indians who began appearing on the banks of a jungle river popular with environmental tourists last year.
    The behavior of the small group of Mashco-Piro Indians has puzzled scientists, who say it may be related to the encroachment of loggers and by low-flying aircraft from nearby natural gas and oil exploration in the southeastern region of the country.
    Clan members have been blamed for two bow-and-arrow attacks on people near the riverbank in Madre de Dios state where officials say the Indians were first seen last May.
    One badly wounded a forest ranger in October. The following month, another fatally pierced the heart of a local Matsiguenka Indian, Nicolas "Shaco" Flores, who had long maintained a relationship with the Mashco-Piro.
    The advocacy group Survival International released photos Tuesday showing clan members on the riverbank, describing the pictures as the "most detailed sightings of uncontacted Indians ever recorded on camera."
    The British-based group provided the photos exactly a year after releasing aerial photos from Brazil of another tribe classified as uncontacted, one of about 100 such groups it says exist around the world.
    One of the Mashco-Piro photos was taken by a bird watcher in August, Survival International said. The other two were shot by Spanish archaeologist Diego Cortijo on Nov. 16, six days before Flores was killed.
    Cortijo, a member of the Spanish Geographical Society, was visiting Flores while on an expedition in search of petroglyphs and said clan members appeared across the river from Flores' house, calling for him by name.
    Flores could communicate with the Mashco-Piro because he spoke two related dialects, said Cortijo, who added that Flores had previously provided clan members with machetes and cooking pots.
    The Mashco-Piro tribe is believed to number in the hundreds and lives in the Manu National Park that borders Diamante, a community of more than 200 people where Flores lived.
    Although it's not known what provoked the Mashco-Piro clan to leave the relative safety of their tribe's jungle home, Beatriz Huerta, an anthropologist who works with Peru's agency for indigenous affairs, speculated their habitat is becoming increasingly less isolated.
    The upper Madre de Dios region where the tribe lives has been affected by logging, she said. "They are removing wood very close."
    Meanwhile, Huerta said, naturalists in the area and Manu National Park officials told her during a recent visit that a rise in air traffic related to natural gas and oil exploration in the region is adversely affecting native hunting grounds, forcing increasing migration by nomadic tribes.
    The clan that showed up at the river is believed to number about 60, including some 25 adults, said Carlos Soria, a professor at Lima's Catholic University who ran Peru's park protection agency last year.
    "It seemed like they wanted to draw a bit of attention, which is a bit strange because I know that on other occasions they had attacked people," Cortijo said by phone from Spain. "It seemed they didn't want us to go near them, but I also know that the only thing that they wanted was machetes and cooking pots."
    Cortijo said the group lingered by the river a few minutes, apparently to see if a boat would pass by so they could ask for some tools, something authorities say they had done in the past.
    "The place where they are seen is one of heavy transit" of river cargo and tourist passage, and so the potential for more violent encounters remains high, Soria said.
    That is compounded by culture clash. The Mashco-Piro live by their own social code, which Soria said includes the practice of kidnapping other tribes' women and children.
    He said the Mashco-Piro are one of about 15 "uncontacted" tribes in Peru that together are estimated to number between 12,000 and 15,000 people living in jungles east of the Andes.
    "The situation is incredibly delicate," said Huerta, the government anthropologist.
    "It's very clear that they don't want people there," she said of the area where the clan has been loitering, noting that it had ransacked a jungle ranger's post that authorities later removed.
    One of the clan's likely fears is being decimated by disease borne by outsiders, as has occurred with other uncontacted peoples, Huerta said.
    But its also a mystery why they have appeared in an area so heavily trafficked, she added.

    After the first sightings, and after tourists left clothing for the Mashco-Piro, state authorities issued a directive in August barring all boats from going ashore in the area. But enforcing it has been difficult as there are few trained and willing local officials.
    Authorities say they aren't sure why Flores was killed. It could be that the Mashco-Piro were angry because he hadn't provided them with more machetes and cooking pots. Or perhaps it was because they considered the farming plot where he was killed too close to what they considered their territory.
    Cortijo, the Spanish archaeologist, said the loss of Flores makes reaching any understanding with the Mashco-Piro very complicated.
    "The problem is that 'Shaco' was the only person who could talk to them," he said. "Now that he's dead it's impossible to make contact."



    Secret of the Incas. Stones Collection of Dr Javier Cabrera, Peru.

    "Uploaded by hotrs71 on May 1, 2009
    Dr. Javier Cabrera was professor of medicine and head of his department at the University of Lima. He has retired from that position and is presently the Cultural Anthropologist for Ica, Peru. In the early 1930's, his father found many of these ceremonial burial stones in area's numerous Inca tombs. Dr. Cabrera has continued his father's research and has collected over 1100 of them. Approximately one third depict the pornographic culture of the Incas, graphically portrayed in the artifacts of that period. Some picture their idolatry, other represent amazing accomplishments, such as successful brain surgery confirmed by scarred skulls which demonstrate healed recovery. Almost one third of the stones depict specific types of dinosaurs, like those seen below, as well as Triceratops, Stegosaurus and Pterosaurs. "

  • "...However, during his studies, Dr. Swift stumbled upon some evidence that seemed to contradict his entire belief system. He encountered evidence that he had trouble ignoring. The following is from his book, "Secrets of the Ica Stones and Nazca Lines:"
    In 1979, while exploring the enchanting Anasazi Indian ruins at Chaco Canyon, my rigid orthodox academia mind received a jolt. At the ranger station, I picked up a copy of Canyon Country Prehistoric Indians, and as I thumbed through the pages, my heart skipped a beat for staring back at me from the book were a series of astonishing statements concerning dinosaur graffiti done by Anasazi Indians. Fran Barnes writes:
    “There is a petroglyph in Natural Bridges National Monument that bears a startling resemblance to a dinosaur, specifically a brontosaurus with long tail and neck, small head and all. In the San Rafael Swell there is a pictograph that looks very much like a pterosaur, a Cretaceous flying reptile. So far archeologists have chosen barely to mention such oddities,…but sooner or later the problem of extinct or anachronistic animal rock art must be scientifically studied and resolved.”
    The Indians had to have seen real live dinosaurs to draw them accurately on sandstone cliffs somewhere between 400 A.D. to 1200 A.D. An Indian looking at a fossil skeleton of a diplodocus dinosaur could never have known that the dinosaur had a long neck and tail, and small saurian head all from a pile of jumbled discombobulated bone puzzle. I tried to pass off the dino drawing as an anomaly of “oop art” floating out of some Indian’s fossil memory. Carl Sagan tried to account for the spread and consistency of dragon legends by saying that they are fossil memories of the time of the dinosaurs come down to us through a general mammalian memory inherited from the early mammals, our ancestors, who had to compete with the great predatory lizards. Memories, memories from 65 million years ago, I told myself. Then for a moment, my intellectual knees began to buckle. It was going to take a lot of faith to believe that such a memory could be passed through up the evolutionary chain from mammals, to animals, to man. [End of quote]
    Dr. Swift searched further and he ran into more unexplainable drawings done by ancient men from around the world. One such painting of a brontosaurus was done by the bushmen of Rhodesia (present-day Zimbabwe) whose history spans from 1500 B.C. until a few hundred years ago. Scientists were perplexed. Again, Dr. Swift: ...

  • Machu Picchu

  • Visit of the Machu Picchu and train

    "..Machu Picchu (del quechua machu, viejo, y picchu cima, es decir, "cima vieja") es el nombre contemporáneo de las ruinas de una antigua llacta (poblado) inca de piedra (cuyo nombre original habría sido Picchu o Picho 1) construido principalmente a mediados del siglo XV en el promontorio rocoso que une las montañas Machu Picchu y Huayna Picchu en la Provincia de Urubamba, en la Región Cusco, en Perú. Documentos coloniales 2 sugieren que Machu Picchu habría sido una especie de palacio privado de Pachacutec o Inca Yupanqui (primer emperador inca, 1438-1470). Sin embargo algunas de sus mejores construcciones y el evidente carácter ceremonial de la principal vía de acceso a la ciudad testimonian que ésta fue usada como un santuario religioso 3. Ambos usos (palacio y santuario) no habrían sido incompatibles. Las investigaciones de las últimas décadas, en cambio, han descartado el supuesto carácter militar de Machu Picchu (por lo que los populares calificativos de "fortaleza" o "ciudadela" han sido superados) 4 Machu Picchu es considerada al mismo tiempo una obra maestra de la arquitectura y la ingeniería 5. Está en la lista del Patrimonio de la Humanidad desde 1983. Sus peculiares características arquitectónicas y paisajísticas y el velo de misterio que ha tejido a su alrededor buena parte de la literatura publicada sobre el sitio, lo han convertido en uno de los destinos turísticos más populares del mundo 6 y el principal de Perú, donde es un ícono nacional.

    Machu Picchu is probably the most familiar symbol of the Inca Empire. Since 1983 the site has been designated as a United Nations Educational World Heritage Site. It is thought that the city was built by the Sapa Inca Pachacuti, starting in about 1440, and was inhabited until the Spanish conquest of Peru in 1532. Archaeological evidence (together with recent work on early colonial documents) shows that Machu Picchu was not a conventional city, but a country retreat town for Inca nobility (similar to the Roman villas). The site has a large palace and temples dedicated to Inca deities around a courtyard, with other buildings for support staff. It is estimated that a maximum of only about 750 people resided in Machu Picchu at any one time, and probably only a small fraction of that number lived in the town during the rainy season and when none of the nobility were visiting. It is thought that the site was chosen for its unique location and geological features. It is said that the silhouette of the mountain range behind Machu Picchu represents the face of the Inca looking upward towards the sky, with the largest peak, Huayna Picchu (meaning Young Peak), representing his nose. The peak is also known as the "hitching post of the sun." In 1913, the site received significant publicity after the National Geographic Society devoted their entire April 1913 issue to Machu Picchu.

    "is a pre-Columbian city created by the Inca Empire. It is located at 2,430 m (7,970 ft)[2] on a mountain ridge. Machu Picchu is located above the Urubamba Valley in Peru, about 70 km (44 mi) northwest of Cusco. Forgotten for centuries by the outside world, although not by locals, it was brought back to international attention by archaeologist Hiram Bingham in 1911, who made the first scientific confirmation of the site and wrote a best-selling work about it. Peru is pursuing legal efforts to retrieve thousands of artifacts that Bingham removed from the site [3]. Machu Picchu is probably the most familiar symbol of the Inca Empire. Often referred to as "The Lost City of the Incas". The site was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1983 when it was described as "an absolute masterpiece of architecture and a unique testimony to the Inca civilization".[4]"
