In this Nov. 26, 2012 photo, foot paths cover the earth made by people who walk to their shack homes on the top of a mountain in the Nueva Rinconada neighborhood on the outskirts of Lima, Peru. Seismologists, engineers and civil defense officials agree that Lima is due for an earthquake but is acutely vulnerable and sorely unprepared. At the biggest risk, apart from tsunami-vulnerable Callao, are places like Nueva Rinconada. A treeless moonscape in the southern district of San Juan de Miraflores, it is a haven for economic refugees from Peru's countryside who continue to arrive daily and cobble together precarious homes on lots they score into steep hillsides with pickaxes.
