KORICANCHA
(The Golden Enclosure or Temple of the Sun)



The most important temple of the ancient Inca culture









Example of Inca construction design that can resist tremors
or withstand Richter 7.0 earthquakes.



The most exquisite stone work . . . beautifully cut and carved
pieces of stones that have no mortar in between the stones,
not even a knife or a blade can penetrate.



Communication through several windows















Slant (trapezoid) stone walls and doors



Different key holes for stone junctions















View of the city of Cusco









Street vendors are busy.









Statue of Pachacutec -- Pachacutec was the great
Inca Ruler who was responsible for re-building
Cusco.




SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
AND MULTI-HANDICAPPED




















Two students presented a short skit.



A group of older students with one teacher in the middle





A group of younger students with 2 teachers



We donated some money to help that school.



Say with the hand -- 'Thanks and Good Bye' through this little window when we left.

I understand Vantage Deluxe World Travel through the Lewis Foundation that
sponsors our tour in South America may be involved in making a
difference in the lives of multi-handicapped children at that school.
