Machu Picchu

Your Stone Bank blogger is just back from a trip to Peru — talk about stonework!

The Inca genius for stacking stone is AWESOME (an overused word and perfect in this case) Truly, Machu Picchu is awe-inspiring, breathtaking, incredible, dazzling.

The Incas are gone — but their buildings stand and bear witness to the fact that building with stone is building to last — a very long time.

Here’s a brief slideshow of our day at Machu Picchu.
