Title: Re: what and where?
Post by: Doobs on August 18, 2017, 03:12:08 PM
I was pretty sure it wasn't Inca or Mayan, as I have seen a few.  I watched something on bbc4 a few years ago about other ruins in the area, but can't remember any of the other names.

Colombia has a lot of history, so that is my guess.

She is Rossiyana Markovskaya, 26-year-old former reporter and newsreader and newly-appointed as the official spokesperson for the Russian Ministry of Defence.

It's quite a change of image for the Ministry. This was her predecessor:
