Tiwanaku archeological site

Posted: January 20, 2012 in Bolivia

The border crossing between Peru and Bolivia resembled a lot with Central America because of it’s chaos, but was still really civilized when it came to the paperwork. It took me about 30 minutes and I was in Bolivia. I didn’t take any pictures of the actual border, just of the town view from the end of the border town.

Shortly after, I headed over to the Tiwanaku archeological site. These ruins are of great importance, they are somewhat the Machu Pichu of Bolivia. Although there isn’t much left to see, excavations are still taking place and the Bolivian GVT is slowly building some nice structures around there.

History of the ruins.
No need to re-write any of it since wiki does such a great job already. 😉

Gate to the sun… but since the sun is just too hot, maybe the gate was used to other directions?

These guys seemed pretty deep into gates… like many other ancient civilizations. I wonder why…
