Bolivia-May 2009
Tiwanaku
Akapana Pyramid
Excavated Area

On top of the pyramid in the north east side is an excavated area with tunnels beneath it.  Rosse Mary told me that the tunnels follow the outline of the Pyramid (i.e., the tunnels are stepped).  She also said that the Pyramid is connected with the Southern Cross Constellation, but I forget how.  As you can see from the foundation, the excavated area has a very intricate design.  We were not allowed to walk into the area (notice the ropes in the photos), which I found irritating.  I felt that this area was interesting, a place that I would like to walk in and spend some time with.
