Gary Jennings, Aztec Autumn (1997), about Aztec resistance to the Spanish conquistadors; #2 in the Aztec series. Our first visit will be to the Santa Lucía hill, the site where the conqueror Pedro De Valdivia founded Santiago in the year 1541.

Interspersed throughout are fascinating architectural ruins from the Nazca, Moche and Incan civilizations, like the world-famous remains of Machu Picchu. The old Patagonian Express is now down to bits and pieces in different parts, leaving it more for entertainment than transportation. Peru also suffers from a "brain exodus" ( fuga de cerebros ) since many of its most capable and educated professionals have left the country for better paying and more secure jobs abroad. The fact that Machu Picchu lies on an 8,000-foot (2,440 meter) mountaintop and that it escaped destruction by the Spaniards looms large in the imaginations of Peruvians and tourists.

This has involved changing an entrenched culture of burning wood for fuel.
