Most of us would just develop a drinking problem.

Can't wait for the NatGeo documentary on this.  I actually appreciate when they've done the LIDAR shows.

No snark. I've been over it for quite awhile. My ex couldn't shut up about the place

During the pandemic, i went off and learned a new skill and got my commercial drone pilot certification.  Its truly a joy to explore places that a human has no business being in.

Maybe we'll finally see where they hid all of the lawnmowers.

Lidar shows some cool stuff that someone like me could never envision without uncovering the bare stone.  Two videos below showing examples of it.  I queued it up to the before/after scene.

It's been a hard break up but yeah, I can see laser equipped drones being a good distraction.

That is amazing!
It brings home the notion that even with satellite imagery, there's tons of stuff on earth that is unexplored and unknown because its covered in foilage.

Didn't they do this already with Albert Lin?

Yeah, but Macchu is one of those places they can devote an entire documentary to, rather than an episode of a series.  I do really like Lost Cities - Albert has grown into his role as a presenter with the other shows he's done.  Most recently, he has an episode with Will Smith, and I really believe he's that much better than when he started.
