A Long Way from Home

First... When Simon Adler was 20 and Elliott Adler was 16, the two brothers went down to Peru together for six weeks. The goal: to have a grand adventure.  Two weeks into the trip, somewhere in the Amazon jungle, they were terrified. The previous 24 hours had been filled with extortion, bribery, and running for their lives.The adventure they found was far more intense than either of them had bargained for.
