PostCards Never Written

PERU
The site of Machu Picchu is a vision that will forever be etched in my mind. As the sunlight broke through the clouds and spilled over the mountaintops, the city lay before us as a glorious reminder of what human beings are capable of creating. I could hardly believe what these people had erected with their bare hands. I wouldn’t have known where to start had I been given a forklift and a crane, never mind a rock to chisel with.
