    Chuto showed Cusi a hidden passage full of gold dust, dust the Incas had brought the Spaniards to release their kind. Columbus was also convinced that the tribe of Amazon warrior women of classical antiquity lived somewhere in this same region. He sees many new sights and many new people. The "Golden Beast" When the Admiral Christopher Columbus first approached the coast of South America, he believed that he had come to the place where the sun rose on the day of the creation. Can't leave Peru without stepping foot in the Amazon rainforest? Their rituals of warfare and human sacrifice were nothing less than an attempt to stop time, to forestall the cataclysm that would sweep their world away.

    To give Bingham credit, he did continue on to find many other Inca sites under far more arduous circumstances. It's an amazing read.

    The locals called the mountain above the saddle - ridge where the ruins were located Machu Picchu - Ancient Peak; and its sister mountain was Huayna Picchu - Young Peak. Along the way I found that the Incas shared with peoples all over the world access to a peculiar meta-language - the technical language of myth - which is so distinctive and so idiosyncratic that no mechanism other than seaborne contact appears adequate to explain its wide diffusion. Melchor Arteaga took him up a path where he met two farmers who had been cultivating the Inca terraces. Great depiction of the Incas. The tomb scene has a similar concept to the map room scene and other than that the rest of both movies is completely different.

Lo and behold, that on the December solstice, the road was also closing, it was only a matter of time.
