The Lost City—A Picture Challenge


Vincent and his team of explorers set out for the Amazonian rain forest. He was looking for the Lost City described in a book he had read. A professional photographer, he took the oppurtunity to take pictures of all he saw.

After two weeks of trudging through swamp and undergrowth, they stumbled on to the Lost City. It was surrounded by a thick clump of palms so tall that they hid it from sight.To the dismay of his team, there was niether treasure nor anything of historical significance.

Back home, Vincent wrote a book about his quest, illustrating it with the photographs . The book became a bestseller and won many prizes too. The Lost City had indeed given him a treasure!
