Mysterious Chaco Canyon

 Day 233 of My Italian Learning Journal*

My copy of the magazine Sierra arrived in the mail today. The article that captured my attention is about Chaco Canyon, in New Mexico. To me ancient civilizations are interesting. The Chacoans must have been great astronomers and architects. Below I have embedded a video about this mysterious site. (Corrections to my grammar in my practice Italian script are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Chaco Canyon nel New Mexico è un luogo di mistero.
    Chaco Canyon in New Mexico is a place of mystery.
  • La posizione è in realtà composta da centinaia di antichi siti sacri.
    The location is actually composed of hundreds of ancient sacred sites.
  • Queste persone hanno costruito strutture per un periodo di centinaia di anni.
    These people built structures over a period of hundreds of year.
  • Devono essere stati incredibili costruttori e astronomi.
    They must have been amazing builders and astronomers.
Alla prossima!
