The crew fly to Ecuador where they spend Christmas in Quito at 15,000 ft. Then they head to the dodgy port city of Guayaquil, where they build "El Viejos" (effigies) and join the crazy tradition of blowing up last year's old ways to celebrate the New Year refreshed. The streets light up in total chaos that rivals the fireworks in Nicaragua! With schedule concerns looming, the crew anxiously moves southeast into the land of the Incas, Peru. On their way team leader Nick leads an excursion on a mountain trail, only to encounter the biggest of road hazards, The Rock. A frustrated team attempts to move mountains, resulting in near disaster and serious injury to team mechanic, Todd. They finally arrive at Machu Picchu where they soak in the majestic views and awe-inspiring ancient architecture.
