The capital city?

Peru finds human sacrifices from Inca civilization

Incan civilization is best known for its capital city, Machu Picchu, the ruins of which are Peru’s top tourist destination and considered one of the new seven wonders of the world.

That is incorrect. Their capital city was never Machu Picchu – it was Cuzco. Machu Picchu is simply the more famous site today. Please correct. Thanks.


Lots of readers noticed this one. We corrected: GBU Editor

Re:”Missing” U.S. governor was on private Argentina trip

Well, at least he wasn’t up on the Appalachian trail hiking naked. Or that’s what they want us to think. Argentina? Naked? Hmmmmmm, tough choice.
