Our class studied the history and countries of Latin America.

I wanted to learn more about Mexico. I did some research and created this slide on it!

Here is a project I've been working on about Incan Bridges.

The Incas built amazing bridges or chacas as the Inca called them. One of the hanging bridges they were famous for building was 250 feet long. It was built in 1350. Sadly it fell in 1890. These huge were held together by 4 to 5 feet thick cable. This cable was made from the fiber of the maguey plant. Though after 2 years the cables have to be replaced. The Inca also made various types of bridges like the pontoon or cable bridge. The cable bridge was a basket hanging from a cable between two towers made of stone. A man in one tower pulled the basket to the other tower.
