At 1:30pm on November 15th, 2017, I’m giving a lecture/slideshow called “Machu Picchu: Exploring the Salkantay Trail.” Here’s a description of the event:
Mountain guide Charlotte Austin has led several expeditions to southern Peru, and she’s joining us to share stories from her recent trek to the ancient Incan citadel of Machu Picchu. We’ll discuss the history of the Incan empire, see photos from her team’s journey over the Salkantay Pass in the Cordillera Vilcambamba mountain range, and maybe even taste some local pisco.

Everybody is welcome, and the event is free! No need to RSVP. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with me directly. For some optional background reading, check out the report I wrote about our 2016 expedition, 1491: New Revelations of the World Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann, and Turn Right at Macchu Picchu: Rediscovering the Lost City One Step At A Time by Mark Adams.
