In 2009, I took Keara’s brother, Nick, on a Disney Expedition to Peru. Our main objective was either to explore Incan archaeology or go white-water rafting on the Urubamba, depending on which one of us you were talking to...
- a structure (part of the water system at Ollantaytambo) with a typical Incan step design,
- a quipu – an intricate knotted cord accounting system (base 10, apparently) used by the Incas and earlier Andean civilizations,
- and probably the most famous place in Peru, Machu Picchu. The last part was started on location just below the Guardian’s Hut near the top of the archaeological site – while I waited for my grandson and other energetic members of our group to return from a climb to the Incan Bridge.
