“The Stairs of Death” in Huayna Picchu, Peru
Undisturbed for 500 years! During an underwater survey of the lake, which straddles Bolivia and Peru, an international team of archaeologists recovered an offering box made of andesite, a local volcanic stone, that was lying on a reef some 18 feet below the surface of the lake.

How our game jam game was published, then held hostage by our Peru-fleeing publisher, and now back in our hands and ready for a beta again.
This is a story about how our gamejam game got published, then stolen, then republished after we won a court battle. I am Edu a game developer in Spain. In 2016 I created a game in one week for #GBJAM. At that time, it didn't have a name so we called it "Shooter". It was just a little black+white metroidvania roguelike.
A lot of people thought it was interesting! A publisher who was just starting out was also super interested in it and they agreed to publish it for us!
We named it Nongunz and updated the graphics and added a ton of features. But we kept the soul of the game the same. It is a roguelike platformer, it is mysterious and there is no text, and nothing is explained to you. Half of the fun is figuring out how the game works and what these cards do.
In 2017 we finished Nongunz and released it on Steam. I thought I was living on top of the world and our publisher agreed to help us port Nongunz to console. That’s when the troubles started.
Our publisher hired an inexperience

The animal figures and geometric shapes etched by the ancient Nasca into Peru’s barren Pampa de San José are one of South America’s great mysteries. Visible only from the air, some of the unexplained shapes are up to 200m in length and each one is executed in a single continuous line.
TIL: There's still an Inca-style woven-grass bridge standing. It dangles around 5 stories above Peru's Apurimac River and is over 115 feet long.

Anyone thinking of traveling to Peru soon. Read this.
Everyone I thought I would write this for anyone considering coming here post COVID.
So firstly we haven't gotten better. We are now the worst country in South America and have now surpassed Brazil in terms of deaths.
There are still 100-200 + deaths a day. Mostly not being televised due to them being either in Poverty areas or simply not being reported because 'they' want to keep the economy running...
The hospitals are collapsing and the Doctors are having huge problems with alot quitting or having severe traumatic breakdowns.
There is an overload of refugees selling illegally on the streets and the main markets are really becoming unsafe to go even with a full mask and shields.
The communities that have given western travelers or Ayahuasca tourists so much in the past are severely affected by this virus beyond anything we have ever seen.
Yes, there are bubbles where it's seemingly ok ie Pisac or the sacred valley but the Cuzco hospitals are being overwhelmed with the influx

Is Peru a good country to study Spanish in?
I've considered going abroad in the near future (Well, at least when the whole 'Rona fiasco is over)
And all of a sudden, Peru popped into my head as a place to go study
- What is the dialect there like? Is it more "Neutral" or is it more noticeably different?
- What does the cost of living look like?
- I might be being paranoid, but does Peru generally have any serious discrimination issues? (Staring and/or touching my hair doesn't count. I'm a dread-headed black guy for context)
- Also, while I'm not worried about personal safety, should there be any petty crimes I have to look out for?

I am a korean male who lives in Korea.
My girlfriend (half korean half venezuelan) went to visit her family in Peru back in December 2019. She was supposed to come back to Korea in February 2020 but as Covid 19 pandemic occurred, she is still trapped in Peru not being able to come back..
I tried many things, from calling embassies in both countries to ask if they know anything.
Of course none of the answers could sufficiently answer my question.
Do any of you ladies and gentlemen know what is going to happen? I keep my eyes close to the covid 19 situation in Peru but it doesn't seem to be getting any better, which I feel like Peruvian airports will still continue being closed.
I wonder if any of you are experiencing the same situation as my girlfriend does now.
Sorry for the long post, I really don't have any place to write this kind of stuff.

I climbed mountains with Wim Hof, swam with virtual Great White sharks, learned to juggle kettlebells, used float tanks, took a 5-hour sauna with Latvian shamans, MDMA with psychologists and ayahuasca in Peru. All of this in pursuit of a human power that I call “The Wedge.” I’m Scott Carney. AMA.
TLDR?: How about watching a 2 minute video instead?
I’m an investigative journalist, anthropologist and author of the New York Times Bestselling book “What Doesn’t Kill Us” and wrote about Wim Hof before he became the international superstar he is today. Before that I was better known for exposing organ trafficking rings and false gurus for Wired, Mother Jones, Playboy, NPR and Men’s Journal. I’m here on reddit today because I just released a new book called “The Wedge.” And, like every author who does an AMA: I’d love you to read it.
For the last few years I’ve been traveling around the world trying to discover esoteric techniques that help put space between stimulus and response--things that allow us to take control over our bodies’ autonomic processes--so that we can thrive amidst adversity. So, I studied the roots of fear in a neu
