Llamas at Machu Picchu Day 14

 

 

 

 

 

 

This six day old llama and her cousin are grazers at Machu Picchu, Cuzco, Peru.  The buildings at this Inca site were built to withstand earthquakes – with the trapezoid shaped entrances and windows.  The stones were cut so expertly that even though there is no mortar between them, they have lasted since the 15th century.

 

Disclaimer: The Shattered Swan is obviously Photoshopped, but both pictures were taken by me.
