Imponderable #42: Chumbivilcas Peru.

Whoever said that violence never solves anything has never been to Peru.

Some facts about Peru :

In 1935, Dr. Forrestal traveled to Peru to recover the Chachapoyan fertility idol and disappeared. The following year, Indiana Jones traveled to Peru to recover the idol and determine Forrestal’s fate. After claiming the idol from the Temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors, Indy was forced to give it up to another competitor, René Belloq, and flee via amphibious plane.

What? You say that’s from Raiders of the Lost Ark? Damn skippy it is. I love that movie.

Anyway, in the real world which I sometimes visit, Peru cannot survive. Seriously, it cannot. How can a country that settles all their conflicts with brute force survive? And yes, I do mean that ironically.

Anyway, Takanguy is based on an old Incan tradition, and whatever happened to them, know what I mean? Hmm? Hmmmmm?

Is all this just an excuse for me to post Lego Indiana Jones in The Raiders Of The Lost Brick?

Of course it is.

And why would they keep up this ridiculous tradition?

The question in Imponderable.
