PERU
Here on the dusty streets of Cusco, it is whispered that human sacrifices still exist. Villagers go high into the Andes where they celebrate, dance and get shit-faced. The first idiot to fall off the cliff is the sacrifice, at which point the celebration grinds to a halt. It seems like a pretty fair way to choose the sacrifice - if you canít party with the big dogs, stay on the porch. Being the proud owner of a llama fetus to ward off evil spirits, Iím not overly concerned.
