Leila was worried because Amalia was unfriendly to her. She went to see Dr. Hafez. He was sitting in front in front of his laptop computer as he had problems with it. He would go to his office in Quenco to have it fixed and he would meet the UNESCO people before their coming for inspection. He asked her to accompany him.
Leila told Dr. Hafez how Amalia was unfriendly to her. He asked her not to be silly and to be friendly with her. They were the same age and the same profession. Leila said it might be because Leila was his assistant and Amalia was under her charge. Dr. Hafez said she was a good archaeologist and she worked well.
The next morning they went to Quenco. Amalia was driving. Dr. Hafez went to his office. Leila wandered in the old part of the town. She walked down quiet little streets. It was warm. She saw some Spanish-style. Women dressed in colourful hats and dresses were sitting in the sunshine. Children ran after her laughing and clapping their hands.
Leila felt tired and needed to sit down and have a drink. She had half an hour as she would meet Dr. Hafez at twelve. She found a cafe. When she saw Amalia sitting there, she decided to sit with her to make friends with her, as Dr. Hafez had advised. She stopped when she saw a man sitting with her. She concluded he was Martin Lander. She noticed Pablo cross the square and go towards the UNESCO office. As it was twelve o'clock, she went directly to meet Dr. Hafez at the Hotel Grande.
As Leila was suspicious, she quickly asked Dr. Hafez to go with her. They went to the cafe but Amalia had left. She told him Amalia had been sitting with someone that looked like Martin Lander. Dr. Hafez said Amalia would not do anything wrong. He trusted her and asked Leila not to be suspicious. He told her that she worried unlike her sister, Samira, who never worried about anything.
Dr. Hafez and Leila had their lunch. When they went back to the camp. Leila took her lap-top computer and logged on to the internet to find about United Mining. It was strange to find out that United operation in Peru ended in 1999. Martin Lander was a liar.
