Three million years ago a thin strip of land emerged from the sea, uniting the Americas. The recently formed bridge turned into the path of an ongoing natural pilgrimage.
Time immemorial testifies the passage of the strangest animals and the recently appeared humans through this narrow bridge of land.

Centuries later, the same path was covered by the natives, the Conquistadors, the Inca gold followers, pirates, slaves, the railway builders, the California gold hunters and the incoming ships from coasts and seas all over the world.

That proximity is life, it is beginning and end. read more
