Old Irish village on mountain top

Overlooking the main square of the mountain village of Machu Picchu, Peru.

Kay observed that the stone buildings were reminiscent of an old Irish fishing village, and I had to concur. This led us to the, slightly irreverent, theory that the Irish actually populated the area thousands of years before the Incas, and definitely before the Spanish arrived.

Bridge

The picture is from southern Argentina, in the countryside of Tierra del Fuego.

Kay and I visited the southernmost point before Antarctica. We did our exploration in a small Glacier tinted car – very suitable.

Kay took the picture while I guided our iceberg across it.

It wasn’t too bad, just unexpected.
