Great photos, Carol. I could look at the Andean stonework all day long. Precise, non-linear, complex joints, bosses, narrow "spacer" stones, bulbous rock faces, broad scoop contours on surfaces, blocks weighing up to hundreds of tons, all done without iron or the wheel, performed on igneous andesite many centuries ago.. It's one of the most fascinating enigmas of civilization and engineering that I've ever seen.
