- The people in the mountains drink their own piss.

You need humor to be here,

otherwise you crazy.

Are you mad at me, gringo?

- I'm pissed.

- What does an American here?

Yes, say it?

- What are you sitting on?

- I am a teacher.

There is no hope for Peru.

We strike. See here.

- They took you too.

- Yes.

Hare Krishna. Why do not you eat?

- What will happen to you?

- They should call the consulate.

You can not trust anyone here.

They just want your dollars.

- Do not have a lot, you are screwed.

- They can not do anything. I'm an American.

- Yes, but you are in Peru.

- What is this?

A rotten fish-eye, I think.

Spying on you.

Police have eyes everywhere.

The new guys. Fresh meat.

White meat.

Touch your toes! Now!

Fetid Kissinger.

Have you washed your feet?

Sleep well.

Lovely fart, Kissinger.

Comrades. Can you be so

please, be quiet.

We have a long,

hard day ahead of us.

Let's not. It's bad behavior.

Stop torturing! Now!

It happens every night. It is

Just getting used to, Gringo ... Mr. Wayne.

Mr. Montgomery, Cathleen Powers,

American consul.

Have a seat.

- I'm so glad you're here.

- It looks like you had some bad luck.

You could say that.

When will I get out of here?

You must know that we will not

to interfere in their judicial system.

A. I just want to make sure that your

Human rights are not abused.
