Matica is walking with her father to the next big city of Cajamarca to purchase some food, medication and the tickets for their six month holiday in Australia.
On the way she misses the condors terribly but still has an adventurous and very good time with her father walking through rainforests, plateaus and other parts of the beautiful country of Peru, seeing macaws, toucans, monkeys and a puma.
In Cajamarca they heard that the poachers are back and snooping around, asking for condors. Matica is devastated and wants to go home quickly to tell her condors.
On the way home they visit an old Incan dwelling. And there, shortly after, a nasty, huge spider bit her father on his ankle. In fright and disgust, she kills it.
Her father had a bad reaction to the bite. His leg swells to double its size. He becomes very ill and delirious with fever. Devastated and shocked, Matica doesn’t know what to do and calls for her condors who come and save her father’s life.
Adventure never stops
