Beyond the photo that I used as a reference to make this work, there is a little story and the reason why I chose it as my inspiration for my first publication I want to share it with you.

It was exactly on April 21, 2020, we were just over a month from the beginning of the mandatory quarantine imposed by the government as a measure to control the spread of covid-19 in Peru, international and interprovincial travel was not allowed at that time, due to my work (environmental sanitation) our team was allowed to move beyond the border of the capital city, our service was a disinfection at the headquarters of the judiciary of a small district called Matucana, in the province of Huarochirí.

At 8:00 a.m., four of us who made up the work team left. As we drove through the city of Lima we could see an atypical Panamericana Norte, relatively empty, very different from the vehicular chaos we are used to in the capital.

The mask could cover a little my expression of happiness for traveling (it is one of my passions), to know new places. While driving along a small road, we left behind Chosica and its radiant sun all year round, my cell phone in hand to record with photographs part of the route, many mountains and a train running on its heights, the Rimac river and a waterfall were part of the landscape.

We finally arrived at our destination, after about two and a half hours. Although I went to Matucana for work reasons, I did not miss the opportunity to visit some streets, its main square, and enjoy the 18ºc weather before returning to the capital. It was a quick trip because of the pandemic, but I promised myself to return someday as a tourist to see its waterfalls, its mountains, its people and culture.
