The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a valley in the Andes of Peru, close to the Inca capital of Cusco and the ancient city of Machu Picchu. It is located in the present-day Peruvian region of Cusco. According to recent researches it encompasses the heartland of the Inca Empire. The valley was appreciated by the Incas due to its special geographical and climatic qualities. It was one of the empire’s main points for the extraction of natural wealth. For more info on Machu Picchu http://school.eb.co.uk/levels/foundation/article/440944

Although the archaeological discovery of Machu Picchu came nearly a hundred years ago, historians are still unsure of the function of this ancient Inca citadel.

The Inca had no system of writing and left no written records, and archaeologists have been left to piece together bits of evidence as to why Machu Picchu was built, what purpose it served, and why it was so quickly vacated.

On the morning of July 24, 1911, a tall lecturer-cum-explorer from Yale University set off in a cold drizzle to investigate rumors of ancient Inca ruins in Peru. The explorer chopped his way through thick jungle, crawled across a “bridge” of slender logs bound together with vines, and crept through underbrush hiding venomous fer-de-lance pit vipers.

Peru looks like a cool country to visit doesn’t it? If you visited Peru what would you like to do some of all?

Can you guess what country Joe will travel to next in South America?

Hint: he’s will be staying on the east coast!

Remember a powerpoint rewarded for anyone who guesses correctly.
