With an obsession to spend a night alone in Machu Picchu and communicate with Los Dios, a spirited young woman pursues adventure in Peru in 1958. What begins with Carolyn’s first teaching job in Lima becomes a ten year commitment working and raising a family in South America during the Cold War years, when Communism was a dangerous threat around the world. Through a series of humorous vignettes, we follow Carolyn’s romances: engagement to a Swede with a motorcycle; then finding Russ, the true love of her life, whom she marries after a three-week courtship and only one date. Russ and Carolyn leave the United States during the Happy Days, a time of innocence and optimism, and return home to a different country in the Seventies.
