Storyline

Donald, the consummate tourist with camera in hand, visits Lake Titicaca, high in the Andes of Peru. With a running commentary by an off-screen narrator, Donald deals with altitude sickness, a trip on the lake in a balsa-wood boat, and a ride on a llama who responds to commands that are played on a flute. The ride across a swaying suspension bridge is the high point of Donald's vacation, just before he drops in on a pottery bazaar. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Narrator: [Donald is struggling to cross a very high and very rickety suspension bridge on a llama] The traveler should be cautioned against any reckless behavior at this high altitude. Overexertion is dangerous. And above all, one should never lose one's temper.
Donald Duck: Shut up, ya big windbag!

A mediocre and lazy-feel Donald cartoon.
19 April 2017 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a narrated Disney short featuring Donald Duck while he is on a trip to South America. We see him spending time in a street market and trying to mingle with the crowd - quite meaningful, but not very entertaining. The most exciting part of the cartoon is when Donald takes a llama up into the mountains, trying to cross a treacherous suspension bridge.

Overall, it's a rather mediocre cartoon - not much laughs or appealing moments. The narration really makes the story sound lazy and unexciting. But, we still get to see some classic Donald temper moments.

Grade D+
