|These are some of the mountains we saw. We are on our way to Tiawanaku|
which is about an hour from LaPaz. This is a village where pre-hispanic cultures of the
south Andes are.They date back around 400 - 1100 AD.
|We stopped along the road before we got to Tiwanaku. |
We found two men and two woman arranging small
objects on some cloths. They are chiefs and their wives.
They are making an offering to Pachu- Mama. Which is
|This was all very interesting to watch.|
|They had everyone get in a circle and they gave us each several|
of these white chalk items. We gave ours to someone else
in the circle and we just watched. Everyone walked around
and laid their objects on the cloth. Many were praying out loud.
|This is the way they held the large stone blocks together.|
Their technology was remarkable. The picture below
show all their straight angles and lines.
|On our way to the airport in LaPaz we saw these colorful costumes.|
The people were also celebrating Pachu-Mama. They were
dancing along side the paved road.
