We impressed upon the local officials as well as farmers in the area how important it was to watch over the site. We made plans to return with officials from the National Institute of Culture to rappel down the cliff again, make an inventory of the artifacts, and take steps to protect them, leaving the dead where they had been placed hundreds of years before. LOST TOMBS OF THE PERUVIAN CLOUD PEOPLE To ensure that the White House remains intact, we will work with the institute to install fencing over the tomb. The institute, in fact, hopes to have the entire region-540 square miles-declared an archaeological reserve. In the end, if all goes well, the White House will be left just the way its creators left it: alone on a cliff, open to eternity.
