"A film by Jim Allen, Atlantis in the Andes, is a great documentary that I fully agree with. Jim, a cartographer set out to find this land not by picking a place he thought could be Atlantis like most fools, but instead followed Plato's directions and details and by using his skills as an aerial mapmaker he found that South America and the altiplano of the Bolivian Andes matched all the physical and provable details. I truly believe the abundant forests, the amazing monolithic structures, the geographical location, everything seems to fit Plato's description perfectly, now all it takes is for the rest of the world to catch up."
