Incan Ruins of Moray, Peru

The ancient ruins of Moray are a giant terraced circular depression in the earth high in the Andes of Peru.  Created by the Incans, it is thought to have been an agricultural research station of sorts, meant to study the effects of climatic conditions on crops. 

The country surrounding Moray, the people lived and worked as they have for many years.  Burros were used to plant and harvest crops and children spent their vacation days tending the family flocks.
