Typical mix of lived in and abandoned houses in Quebrada. Hard to tell which is which. During the guerilla wars with the shining path, rural farmers had 2 choices: stay or flee to Lima. Lima exploded in growth. For those who stayed, if you fed the rebels, the army killed you, And visa versa. If you helped neither, they killed you. So many homes in towns were abandoned. Farmers lived nocturnally, tending crops at night and retreating to hide in the jungle in the day.
