I agree wholeheartedly with your proposal to divide yrUBbury into four quadrants running off from the downtown, plus the hillsides.

You’re right on the money about having a Celtic quarter, a Viking quarter, a Yankee quarter, and an Italian-French Canadian quarter, plus a Greek hillside, and – assuming that we can tame them – an Inca hillside. Each one should have its own plaza for gathering and festivals. In addition, each one should have its own school, run as much as possible by the neighborhood.

The plan to create farmers’ markets in each of the quadrants is brilliant.

It’s all part of a bigger picture, remember?

At the time of the Spanish invasion, the Incas were torn by civil war. Two competing brothers, Huascar and Atahualpa, fought – many of their captains were killed.

Huascar killed his own captains, paid them poorly – the soldiers, too.

In an earlier plot, those conspirators were not killed but turned into servants – “yanacona” – making me wonder. Were the Incas headed toward a slave society?

“Huayna Capac” – “powerful youth” – was another king.

Royal pretenders were disemboweled; their skins were made into drums; their hands, used to slap the drums.

Check out the local drums, will you?

If the Inca are after the same sites we are, why can’t we form a partnership with them? Seems we’re aiming at some of the same things.

As you suggested, I’ve hired Dorothy Zen to color coordinate our projects on the hillsides.

You may appreciate Goat-man’s proposal to include vineyards on the south-facing Greek slopes and terraced potato patches on the north-facing Inca hillsides.

We’ve set aside a site for a winery.
