We made our way through Cuzco to the Cuesta San Blas. This magnificent street was built by the Incas. As you can see most of the buildings still have walls made from the Incas. This means they are over 700 years old. The big stones on the bottom are the stones the Incas built. The Spaniards built directly on top of the Incan walls. Can you believe these walls have survived this long and have also survived many earthquakes?
This is one of the most famous stones made by the Incas. It is called the 12-angled stone. Can you find all 12 angles that are in this stone? The Incas did not have iron tools to make these walls.
After we found all 12 angles in the stone, we turned around and can guess who appeared? It was the Incan Prince that the llamas had talked about. I was stunned and a little bit nervous. He looked so royal, and I am just a travel bear. There was no need to worry. He was nice as can be, and immediately knew what I was coming to ask about. The Incan Prince had not only heard about the crystal skull but has personally seen the skull and knew where I could find it.
“Jose, Travel Bear of the Americas go directly to the City in the Clouds called Machu Picchu. There you will find the crystal skull. The condor will guide your way.”
