South America

It's been quite a while since I checked in with Jackie's Mid Life Crisis Gap Year. Jackie Britton is traveling the world, visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and building them in LEGO. Her most recent travels have taken her to sites in South America.

Recently she visited Cuzco, Peru, where one of the sites she visited was the city's main cathedral.

She then went on to Machu Picchu. I've recently discussed the question of the religious significance of this site.

A bit after that she traveled to Rapa Nui, or Easter Island. It's not clear what exactly the Moai, the giant statues, represent, but they may represent deified ancestors.
