Roads are vital for overall development and the access afforded by these can be both extremely beneficial as well as hugely damaging. The road network in Peru includes the Inter-Oceanic Highway South [Carratera Interoceania Sur], a route linking the Pacific Ocean in Peru with a highway in Brazil that continues east to the Atlantic. This artery, already completed in Brazil but not totally finished in Peru, brings substantial social and environmental change to many areas.

And all the while, a caretaker, a man with a white turban and a splendid black moustache, explained the history and significance of this sacred shrine.
