Leaving La Paz, Bolivia, they race around Lake Titicaca and across the intermountain Andean plateau to Huatahata, Copacabana, Tiawanacu, Puno, Cuzco, Machu Picchu, and points in between. In their flight, they repeatedly, narrowly escape capture. A high-stakes journey for armchair travelers addicted to danger.
