To-Do and old photos from history – Machu Picchu from 1911

Posted By on January 9, 2019

Photo from history website pulled from Reddit

Machu Picchu, an ancient Inca settlement in Peru, wasn’t discovered by someone with a camera until 1911. American archeologist Hiram Bingham took the first known photo when he visited in 1911. Bingham arrived in Peru with a small team of explorers to search for the famous “lost” cities of the Incas. It is now one of the top tourist destinations in the world.


I’m adding a new category to the MyDesultoryBlog for 2019 — To-Do. It will be a place to post things to do as well as places to go.

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
