And here's a great travel article.

Apparently they just "discovered" the third-highest waterfall in the world in some remote part of Peru. (Is there a non-remote part of Peru?) This writer goes to check it out, and despite pictures that are worse than the ones I take with disposable cameras, he tells a gripping story. The waterfall is only a small part of the story - this guy comes across a pre-Incan ruin larger than Machu Picchu, visits a museum where the employees fiddle with mummies, camps out in front of an Adventist Church and manages to trip the churchgoers with his tent cord, confronts angry drunken villagers...now that's traveling.
