The weird capital
Machu Picchu introduction
Who rediscovered Machu Picchu?
How Hiram Bingham must have lived?
What they thought about it then.
In those days the Incas thought, "It is just our capital. We need to build it somewhere where invaders don't invade our capital city and kill our leader. No one can invade us if we make our capital on top of a mountain." Then, they built the capital. They had farms on the edge of the mountains because of terraces. They made terraces by slamming one rock on another until it made step looking terraces. (Social studies book).
what we think now
Time to say adiós, conclusion time
This was my paper on Machu Picchu. The first body paragraph was about who rediscovered it and how he rediscovered it. The second body paragraph is about how Hiram Bingham must have lived in order to hike 25 miles, going up and down mountains so high your ears could be ringing so loud other people could hear the ringing. There could have been a hilarious story right there, but I would have gotten even more off topic than I already am. Anywho the third was what they thought about Machu Picchu then. The final body paragraph was about what we think about it now and why.
