Impressive

I was in Tiwanaku in November 2007. I went with high expectations, I had read a lot about the sun gate and the Inca rituals which used to be performed at the site. I was stopping in La Paz, and I went with two friends who lived there temporarily. We drove, leaving the Alto was difficult, but once we found our way it was a lot easier. Upon entering, we found a sign that said: "The capital of Tiwanaku empire in classical times was a densely centralised state controlled by top artisans and farmers who supplied a variety of products harvested from different ecological countries." They are still excavating, and I watched how women perform the tasks that are more suitable for men. How they built the walls with stones of different sizes and how they all fit perfectly was really impressive including the blocks for the sun gate and statues. My photos are on flickr and can be seen at ' http://www.flickr.com/photos/celi-online/sets/72157603740144253/'

Site of tiwanaku

There is a lot of the history of the Inca Empire and the achievements in regards to their astronomical knowledge. Incredible findings of monoliths and the door of the sun ... You feel positive energy when you get to the spot, you have to bring sunscreen and a good coat because both the sun and the cold temperatures are quite strong.
