Virtual reality is a great way to learn (and travel). In class, we have been reading persuasive texts about Machu Picchu and what it could have been built for (a royal retreat or an astronomical observatory).
|Machu Picchu, in Peru|
The tour also gave us a better understanding of how the site could have been used as an observatory (because it was so high!) or as a royal retreat (because it was so remote and beautiful.)
In summary, the virtual tour of Machu Picchu was simply awe-inspiring.
