         i apologize for the other large file, the wrong pic was grabbed. 
         photos of the larger stone portions of the walls, are commonly seen, so i will show other views.  i am more convinced it was a waterworks.  it looks as though the water flowed down in a ccw spiral. 
         in the view attached, we look across the level crop land to the hill opposite.  note the ramp effect, and the erosion of the stones.  the rounded horizontal edges show water erosion.  this is seen on the unworked stone on the left. 
         the center cut channel may have seen more water than people.  each of these hills likely has a large spring, that was rerouted to cuzco.  it was done mostly underground - so we are talking tunnels.  its almost certain. 
         its peculiar that these things were not reported earlier.  the gold and silver belongs to the natives, but the history is the property of humanity.  for 500 years, this was a mystery.  just follow the water uphill.  abuse of this info for personal gain will have a severe penalty, if not in this life, the next.  melting artifacts is a sin against mankind.  the rivers are the place to get gold. 
         the size of the stones decreased further uphill.  much more might be seen by a strong walker, who followed the spiral ramps for their entire course uphill. 
         more than half the stones were carried to cuzco.  rocca may have been as guilty as the conquistadors, in looting cut stones.  how can we be certain that the inca could cut and fit stone with that accuracy, when so much stone was looted?  at least two other high cultures preceded the inca, perhaps at 50,000 bce, and 26,000 bce.  peru is hoary with age.  it had advanced cultures before some of the mt uplifts.  it offers the best ground for digs. 
         the natives of the altiplano today think nothing of the bitter cold that is common most nights of the year.  most homes, and apparently buses, are unheated.  whether in the cold, or the desert, families tend to remain where their ancestors lived.  the 21st century hasnt fully reached there yet.
