An incredible city that I’m extremely happy I had the chance to visit. Probably one of my favorites cities ever. I will return. Wait and you’ll see.
DAY TWENTY FIVE - A SONG THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH
- Pachacuti - Horrible Histories: If this doesn’t make you laugh, you’re dead.
Pachacuti was the Conqueror Inca, he significantly extended the territory of the Inca Empire, the Tawantinsuyo. Incas, like Romans offered others tribes the possibility to surrender and became part of the Empire, if they didn’t agree then they used violence. They quickly became the largest South American empire.
In my region en Ecuador there is a lake called Yaguarcocha, lake of blood, the legends says that Huayna Capac (Pachacuti’s granson) won over the caranqui confederation and left no survivors and trewn the corpses to the lake that remained red for generations.
