Rich in culture, the Inca civilization had many beliefs. Their religious practices included worshiping gods and in burial, the wealthy were often wrapped in tapestries. The Incas also recognized two social classes. These classes were the upper, which in included the emperor and the priests, and the lower, which included the farmers and servants.
The Inca’s ability to master the stone still puzzles and fascinates many. Without mortar, the stones were cut and shaped with amazing precision. A great artistic example of this work is the twelve angle stone. This stone has flawless angles and fits perfectly into the surrounding stones.
At Machu Picchu, the Incas used the land for living and as agricultural terraces. The land was owned by the emperor, and farmed by the common people. The terraces also provided protection from hillside erosion and had sophisticated drainage systems.
In an FJ world, there are no boundaries
In 2011, I spent four days hiking through the Peruvian Andes. En route to Machu Picchu, literal translation meaning the “old peak”, we hiked the Lares Trek. Traveling of the beaten path, we meandered through stunning valleys and breath-taking landscapes before continuing on to Machu Picchu.

Today, much of the villages surrounding Machu Picchu still hold strong to Inca traditions. In these areas, you can see that the reflection of their ancestral past is still practiced through language, art, textiles and farming.
Quechu, spoken by the Inca civilization, is still spoken by many in these remote settlements. We were fortunate to have a wonderful guide (Roger) who spoke the language and was able to converse with the locals. We were intrigued as they shared with us stories about their tradition, adventures and way of life.
Farming is a way of life for most locals living in remote villages in the Peruvian Andes. From miles away, you can see fields of corn, potato as well as farmers tending their herds of alpacas and llamas.
Textiles play an important part in Peruvian culture and represent a tradition passed down from generations. The brightly woven textiles are intricately designed and have patterns that represent their historical past.
Here are a few photos of the FJ.
