Ancient Civilization


We visited the ruins of an old civilization that arose about 1000AD and mysteriously disappeared 500 years later.

They lived in rooms they heated with fires

We had a guide, who was very funny (he didn't know, though). He fancied himself an interpreter of other cultures, and punctuated his lengthy ruminations when he had isolated yet another cultural difference with the phrase: "different relativity!" and then after a dramatic pause followed by a thought-provoking "hmmm..."

I didn't have the heart to point out that the very idea of relativity is that it is different.

The same view the old settlers had (sans guide)
