MAPS IN THE NEWS:
The left-wing candidate in Peru's hotly contested election this week, Pedro Castillo, is from Chota Province, an area in the Andes Mountains nearly 1,000 km north of the capital of Lima. Despite its distance from the Atlantic Ocean, Chota is both mountainous and part of the watershed of the Amazon River. Chota Province is shown in red on this map; the inset on the lower left shows the province's location within Peru: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a3/Location_of_the_province_Chota_in_Cajamarca.svg/375px-Location_of_the_province_Chota_in_Cajamarca.svg.png
