  1. I sent this to our kids Max and Kristi. They were there last year in Peru for two weeks. It is a green world, but such a different green from here. The plants are like something from outer space.

  2. The Incas considered their King, the Sapa Inca, to be the “child of the sun.” There had to be a connection in time with the Egyptians. They also worshipped the sun god. When you were there did you find any drawings showing the sun god? The picture on the wall made me think about what kind of worship they had. They also had a sophisticated farming system, known as the vertical archipelago model of agriculture. I looked this up. China and Japan use vertical farming system, not sure what it is called.
