Summary
Two months into her journey and well into the high mountains of northern Peru, Karin meets a sorcerer--a man with the power to cure ills and see into the future. She takes the opportunity to participate with him in an all-night healing ceremony, which requires drinking San Pedro cactus juice and snorting liquid tobacco. Continuing on to the Chachapoyas, Peru's new archaeological frontier, Karin befriends a local farmer who offers to be her guide. She discovers that most ruins of ancient Chachapoya civilization reside in the cliffs--hundreds of burial chambers, each containing a mummy. Proceeding the Peru's capital at Lima, Karin finds a modern metropolis where the word "Inca" seems to have become little more than advertising jargon used to sell goods. She arrives in Lima on the eve of the Lord of Milagros procession--the largest religious gathering in all of Peru. There's never a dull moment along the Inca road, as Karin deals with unexpected twists and turns that add humor and dimension to her unique story
