Olden days. Life as an Inca boy

(Ms Morris – this is for Xavier`s olden days study for class)

If I was a little boy in machu picchu i would sleep on animal skin and for light we would make a fire. For food i would eat animals like llamas, rabbits and guinea pigs. I could play in the tunnels.


i would pray to gods at the temple of 3 windows and the temple of the condor.

I could hike up the wayanapicchu mountan to look out for enemies.

If I went to another town I would have to walk along a hand made path across a cliff. The path has a huge drop off, way, way down. On the path is the inca bridge. the inca bridge is made for any other enemies coming to defeat us. We would lift up the bridge and the enemies couldnt get across it because there was a big rock down below and if they went down they would get stuck there forever.


I could walk up to the observatory. The rock was carved to face the sun. there was some terracing that we grew our crops on. in one of the walls there was a rock carved that had 32 sides to fit like a jigsaw.


in the walls of my house there were sticky out rocks that we can tie our roof on with. for the roofs we use leaves and grass. For windows and for doors we use animal skins on cold nights. The toilets are just holes in the ground that you poo and wee in.


For fun in one of the ruins, there is a cave that I can have fun in.

On the sides of their paths there were lots of mini aqueducts. One of them came out and made lots of waterfalls.

in the walls next to the path there is a sticking out piece of rock that we put fire on to light up the path so we could see where we are going.

I would eat some types of plants and there were holes in the rocks that we use to put the plants and animals in to grind them up with rocks.
