Machu Picchu

Lost City

What do you SEE?

(Describe what you see using WOW words)

I saw ancient ruins in Machu Picchu.  Mystical mountains towered in the cloudy skies.  The clouds were white and glorious.

What do you THINK?

(As you are experiencing VR tell your audience in detail what you are thinking using sequence words. First, Next, Last)

Throughout the Expedition, I was thinking, “I can’t believe those people made those beautiful temples.”

What do you WONDER?

(During your expedition what are you wondering about? What questions come to your mind?)

How did they manage to make those glorious structures?  Exactly how old are they again?
