Explanation:

[STC003076] The nation of Peru, where Machu Picchu is located, is prone to earthquakes, and the historical monument itself is situated directly upon two active fault lines. The question is, therefore, what the heck has allowed it to last this long? Of course, we owe this to the distinctive method that the Inca used to construct their walls. Using extremely precise cutting techniques and laying stones without mortar has allowed the stones to move, or ‘dance,’ whenever a whole lot of shakin’ is goin’ on. Many thanks to the Inca constructors!
