The place where the world comes together in honesty and mirth. Windmills Tilted, Scared Cows Butchered, Lies Skewered on the Lance of Reality ... or something to that effect.

The Chilling Human Remains of Peru’s Ancient Chauchilla Cemetery
Cemetery in Peru was in operation from about 200 CE to about 1000 CE.
Situated in the Sechura Desert near Nazca, the conditions are so dry
that those buried in the open-air tombs became mummified. Some even
retain their skin and hair! Many have been vandalized by graverobbers
over the centuries, but what is left of them still sits in the desert,
facing the east, as was the custom. Read more and see plenty of pictures
of the mummies of Chauchilla Cemetery at Urban Ghosts.
