Interestingly, the first obviously false one you mention is the one most people get wrong.
I am so old that I was able to visit Machu Picchu when only a handful of tourists were there...Spent the night at the small inn on the mountain and climbed Huaynu(?) Picchu the next morning...an awesome experience.
Feel sort of dumb to have missed that Fujimoro is in prison..When I was living in Lima, the first 'democratic' election in how long? was held and Belaunde was elected. The campaign consisted primarily of cars driving through the streets honking horns and waving banners.
How wonderful to have visited when only a few tourists were there! I walked the Inca Trail with a tour in 2000s and we got up early on the final day to see the sun rise over Machu Picchu before the bus and train crowds arrived. It got busier as the day went on but still wasn't too bad. Also had the pleasure of climbing Huayna Picchu like you. Amazing.
I never saw Cotahuasi Canyon but did visit the Colca Canyon which was deep enough for me. Walked down... then realised I had overestimated my fitness and had to pay to take a donkey back up. Which sounds relaxing but at every hairpin bend it carried on walking forward until it was looking down over the cliff edge I was readying myself to jump off if it decided to end it all.
I still occasionally think of Deathwish the Donkey.
However, I just learned that there is a highway from Manaus to the North as well, connecting to Venezuela. That road is open.
“The genera Lama and Vicugna are, with the two species of true camels, the sole existing representatives of a very distinct section of the Artiodactyla or even-toed ungulates, called Tylopoda, or "bump-footed", from the peculiar bumps on the soles of their feet.” (Llama wiki example)
I get the point you’re making, but I feel that anyone aware of the llama-camel link should side with true. They are easily closely related enough in the scheme of things for false being the answer to be quite unreasonable, and it would generate many more complaints. I feel that the complaints here are somewhat hypothetical?
Specifying “suborder” or “family” makes the question more specific, but not necessarily a better question, as specifics like that aren’t general knowledge. If anything it looks more likely to be a trick question to me.
That llamas and camels are closely related is general knowledge I think, and if you’ve you heard that you should pick true.
Happy to discuss… :)
