Did She Really Say That?

Our first hike up Machu Picchu was with a guide and two other couples, one from Oregon, the other from Australia.

Our guide, Carlos, was drawing a diagram in the sand with a stick, when Barbara from Oregon blurted out, “That looks like a woman’s uterus.”

My wife and I pinched each other.  Hard.  To keep each other from laughing out loud.  Hard.

That’s such a tough line to top, I wouldn’t dare try.  So here are a few more pictures.

The view from our hotel terrace.

How did the Incas pull this off? Seriously?

The Incas didn't use mortar, just fitted rocks.

It's llama land. We're just visiting.

    What little resources they had back them and what wonders they accomplished. I’d say no one can ever replace good old fashion hard work. Some people have no filters.

    Barbara has got to be in the medical field or else obsessed with a woman’s reproductive organs. How many women even know what a uterus looks like! Your trip sounds wonderful – your pictures are just incredible. You are being very kind and generous in taking time from your vacation to share it with your blogging family. You give us history, beauty, and humor and we appreciate it very much!
