El Perú es desde este momento libre e independiente por la voluntad general de los pueblos y por la justicia de su causa que Dios defiende. ¡Viva la patria! ¡Viva la libertad! ¡Viva la independencia!
From this moment on, Peru is free and independent by the general will of its people and by the justice of its cause which God defends! Long live the nation! Long live the freedom! Long live the independence!
(Declaration of the Peruvian independence, July 28, 1821)
Moray is an Incan ruin in Peru. At first, it appears to be an amphitheater but that does not appear to have been its purpose. There is an irrigation system in place and archaeologists are still not sure if it was meant to be a laboratory of sorts for agricultural experimentation or something else.
It is amazing how many Inca stone walls are incorporated into buildings in present-day Cuzo. Despite being un-mortared, the walls are strong and seismically stable. This wall on an unassuming commercial street to the east of the Plaza de Armas was once a major route out of the city, and there are remains of Inca walls along it, incorporated into modern buildings, for a considerable distance.
