Guest: David Adams

When the Spanish first came to Peru, they found unfathomable cities of gold. To the Incas, gold represented the sun and all of its power and glory, but to the Spaniards it was wealth to be obtained at all costs. To protect their most holy icon, the Incas secreted away a large golden solar disc into the forest. It remains hidden, to this day.

David Adams sets off on a quest to find the lost great golden disc of the sun. His intrepid journey begins in the last know resting place of the disc, Cusco. Next, it is up the mountains in an old sputtering truck with two colorful locals. His journey continues into the dense jungles as they rediscover an ages old temple and wonder what secrets its holds.
