More pics

Despite the snow, I stopped by Alexei’s place tonight to discuss the walls of the Akapana (again), and to get more photos of the site. I’m not really happy with the pictures that are available of the site in the literature and feel like I need more primary data. Along with the pictures, I also picked up a traveler’s first-hand account of the Akapana in 1911 which mentions how the locals would hold parties at the top of the structure. Combine that with the looting and other disturbances that occurred at the site (which include farmers growing potato crops on the Akapana), and I’m realizing that the structure has really been given a beating over at least the past 500 years or so.
