Na dnes sme mali naplanovanu navstevu Tiwanaku. Rozhodli sme sa ist cez agenturu, lebo to vyslo lacnejsie a tiez pohodlnejsie. Ako vzdy na miesto sme dorazili vyse hodinu neskor, ale mi by sme sa asi viac cudovali keby sme dorazili na cas. Tiwanaku bola najvyznamnejsia a najdlhsie trvajuca /3000 rokov/ civilizacia aka sa kedy vytvorila na juhoamerickom kontinente. Pokial myslite na Inkov tak ti trvali len nejakych 300 rokov. Tiwanaku bol tiez nazov ich hlavneho mesta z ktoreho ale uprimne vela nezostalo. Areal tvorili dve pomerne chudobne muzea, rozborena pyramida a dalsie dva chramy. Bolo vsak velmi zaujimave pocuvat vyklad nasho sprievodcu o tom ako dokladne mali premyslene polnohospodarstvo, zachytavanie vody alebo privod vody z vtedy 5 km vzdialeneho Titicaca a ine. Vecer sme sa len tak potulovali a isli spat skoro, lebo najblizsie dva dni budu namahave.

For today we planned to visit Tiwanaku. We decided to go with agency, because it was much cheaper than public transport and also more convinient. As usual we managed to get there more than hour late, but by now we would probably be more surprised to be there on time. Tiwanaku was the most importaƱt and longest ruling /3000y./ civilization ever in south america. If you are thinking about Inkas they managed just 300 years. Tiwanaku was also name for their capital, which to be honest is by now just not very interested ruin. Areal was consisted of two quite boring museums, one ruined pyramide and two other temples. But to be fair it was very interesting to listen our guide talking about their well-thought way of agriculture, catching rain water, getting water from at that time 5 km distant Titicaca and more. In the evening we just walked a bit around and went to sleep very early because next two days are going to be hard.
