Hey…Machu Picchu Isn’t in Nepal

(Thanks to Gloomy Joe, as always)

Royal Nepal Airlines has apologized to the country of Peru after using pictures of Machu Picchu in its advertisements.  Oddly, Nepal’s embassy put out this statement, "As a consequence, the Nepalese airline fired an employee in the rank
of a manager…" Why did they include his level?  And why bother noting that they fired a low-to-mid level employee over this?  The story also notes, "From a distance, some mountain temples in the Himalayas could be mistaken for Incan ruins."  So there ya go.
