Default Best Slide Film

Hi all. I am going to Cusco, Peru in a month and I am shopping around for a good positive film or two. I already have around 15 rolls of Provia and a few Velvia 100f in Medium format, but I am really looking for something good for 35mm. I now have a nice 17-40 lens and really want to make the most of it. I am not totally sure what to expect colorwise except that I think there is alot of green and yellow depending on where you are in the area. What would you all suggest and why?

Sticking with Fuji would seem to be a sensible option as the colour rendition is likely to be similar to the film you are already using. Velvia 50 has been discontinued in the UK but Velvia 100 has very quickly been accepted by even the most conservative of pro's who thought the demise of 50 would mean the end of life as we know it.
