Some 250 tourists stranded in Peru’s Machu Picchu due to bridge collapse
Published on : Wednesday, February 12, 2014 Travel &Tour World - Global News.
Landslides triggered by heavy rains washed away a bridge connecting the 15th century Inca site of Machu Picchu in Peru, stranding some 250 tourists from several countries, a local official said Tuesday.
With the collapse of the Aobamba bridge, said Ruben Pinto, mayor of the local Santa Teresa district, the visitors were cut off from the train station that shuttles visitors in and out of Machu Picchu.The mayor asked the tourists to remain at the site before municipal workers could fix the bridge.
Declared a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) World Heritage Site in 1983, Machu Picchu is often referred to as the “Lost City of the Incas.”In 2013, the site attracted 3.16 million visitors from around the world, according to official figures.

Beautiful letter from Chinese Professor at the Beijing Institute of Graphic Communication

Dear Dr. Shield,
You are an amazing person, and I did a search on you. I want to tell you how you influenced me while growing up on your program on mysteries. I learned much and gained much knowledge about the world and was always wanting to learn more about those archeological finds you unmasked. I truly enjoyed them. I must say that they were part of the impetus that made me a professor and gave me the sense of wonder of discovery.
I would like to find your books and read them if possible. I live in China, where it would be rather difficult to obtain them. Perhaps, if you have any back copies, you would graciously consent to send me a few, to be donated to the Beijing Institute of Graphic Communications in Beijing, China after reading them several times. They would be greatly enjoyed by our students, who also have a vast history of many discoveries still being made today. I wonder if you have participated in any of the research being done in China today. If this is possible, please let me know and I will send you my address. The website for the university is http://www.bigc.edu.cn/ and it has been translated into English.
I was also wondering if any of your works have been translated into Chinese. Dr. Su and I specialize in joint translations for publication in China. We did the book, Read My Lips, No More Taxes by Dan Ostrander about ex-President George W. Bush Sr., a huge success here in China.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
My belated condolences on the loss of a beloved son, as per from your website.

A lifetime of Archaeological research
Like my boyhood idol Howard Carter, I entered the field of Archaeology without any University qualifications. At 17 I joined the British Air force hoping to become an Arial photographer, however the aptitude tests at that time steered me into the field of communications and I graduated three years later. My interest in photography persisted and on leaving the service after 10 years I became Associated Press's photojournalist covering the middle east and based on the island of Malta. During that time I was recruited by the then Maltese Government Department of Information from 1955 – 1960 and assigned the task of recording all the treasures left by the Knights and displayed in the museums and Churches on the Islands. My love of ancient history and the thrill of discovery was recognized by Cambridge University's Dr. David Trump, who was the head of archaeological excavations on the island and I was invited to join their team whose main focus at that time were the catacombs of St. Peter & St. Paul and St. Agatha's in Rabat. I was to spend the next 5 magical years working alongside the remarkable Doctor, and Fr. Victor Camilleri MSSP (Missionary Society of St. Paul's.) Victor was to remain a close friend until his untimely demise on Dec.15th 2011. During those 5 years I was privileged to photograph and record all the archaeological sites on the islands of Malta and Gozo, including the amazing G’gantija (3,600 – 3,000 B.C.), the earliest freestanding stone monument built by man. It pre dates the pyramids of Egypt and are older than England’s Stonehenge. I have spent considerable time at Stonehenge in the 50’s and again in 1988. During my two-year return visit to the Island to write my most recent book “Malta ”, I designed a photo marketing program for introduction at all Malta’s most frequently visited Archaeological sites. I filmed a pilot program at “Ghar Dalam” the cave of Darkness, for my World of Unexplained Mysteries (Malta) television series. My work on the remarkable “Shroud of Turin” Mystery resulted in the re-mastering of my interviews with the Sturp group, researching the results of their investigative study conducted in 80's into the authenticity of this amazing artifact. (http://shroudresearch.com) I was also able to record details of the long forgotten “Shroud of Malta”, full details of which are recorded on my World of Unexplained Mysteries web site http://worldofunexplainedmysteries.com. The amazing Shroud of Rabat plays a major role in my new novel "In The Image Of His God - the Curse of the Shroud" available at http://pjshield.com or on Amazon.com. During the 80’s, an Exhibition of my replica artifacts from the Louve Museum in Paris, toured Australia and was also used as the basis of my presentation of the Howard Carter Story to Australian High School Students. In my 70 odd years I have had the opportunity to work, visit and write about archaeological sites in China, Cyprus, Australia, Central and South America, Ireland, Great Briton, Spain, Japan, Taiwan, Cambodia, and Malta to name but a few.
Over the years I have had the opportunity to study at England's Cambridge University, Nottingham University and Dublin's Trinity college in Ireland; and In the USA at UNLV here in Las Vegas. Thanks to the internet, and after over 50 years of dedication to the field of art preservation and archaeology, my lifetime work was recognized and I applied for and was granted the degree in Art and Archaeology that I had so long coveted.
In my semi retirement, and at 81 years young, I have entered a new and exciting field of exploration - that of "Yard Sale Archaeologist"
Peter J. Shield
It is with the deepest regret that I announce the death of my dearest colleague and friend Rev. Fr. Victor J. Camilleri MSSP.
Victor was one of the most beautiful and inspiring men it has been my privilege to know. Fr. Victor J. Camilleri, passed into the arms of his God on December 15th,2011. I first met Victor whilst in Malta in the early 1950's. I was Associated Press's photo journalist there and attached to the then government's Central Office of Information. Working with Cambridge Universities archaeological team Fr. Victor took me under his wing and allowed me to assist with the excavation of the St. Agatha's catacombs - a project that has been dear to my heart ever since. I featured Victor in my Historic Novel "In the Image of His God" published two years ago. The same age, our birthdays were only two days apart and we celebrated together on several occasions. His loss will be felt by all whose lives he touched and he will remain in my heart forever. May God rest his sole and welcome him into his arms where he so rightly belongs. Dr. Peter J. Shield PhD, ARP, CSST.
