A heartbroken father is faced with the painful choice between ruining his kindhearted employer and passing something of his heritage along to his estranged daughters
TEN YEARS AGO
Faced with hospital bills incurred by desperate attempts to save his dying wife, Antonio sold
priceless family heirlooms to the antique dealer he works for. These finely-woven wedding mantas had been handed down by the women of his Bolivian family for 300 years.
Ashamed of his inability to save his wife or support his daughters, and rejected by his deceased wife’s family, Antonio became estranged from his daughters Erica, Anna, and Nina.
ONE YEAR AGO
Hearing about Nina’s upcoming wedding, and knowing that the ancient mantas had not yet been resold by his employer, Antonio snuck the heirlooms out of the warehouse and, unable to face his daughters in person, left them with his late wife’s sister Nancy, with whom his daughters had lived.
His employer has finally sold the mantas for a very high price, only to discover them missing – and
a heartbroken Antonio is faced with the painful choice between harming his kindhearted employer and passing something of his heritage on to his daughters.
Heirlooms tells the story of a key moment in the life of a man tortured not just by the everyday cruelties of the world, but by the self-knowledge of his own inability to deal with them. While the tragedy of his wife's death was inflicted on him and his family from the outside, Antonio's subsequent feelings of inadequacy, leading to estrangement from his motherless daughters, form an even greater tragedy that sends him spiraling ever deeper into guilt and despair.
As we all do to some extent, Antonio deludes himself with plans for his own redemption that bring him no closer to it. His long term plan of renovating a house to present to his daughters when he re-enters their lives only serves to keep him away from them that much longer. His removal of the ancient mantas from the warehouse - justified by the thought that they hadn't sold so far, and provoked by the weight of 300 years of their importance to his family - only leads to trouble for someone else who's like family to him. And the fumbled presentation of these family heirlooms, not directly to the daughters he can't face but to his already-disapproving former sister-in-law, can't help but take away from the chance that they'd be received with any interest in him or his heritage.
But again, like most of us to some extent, even though he can't control his destructive behaviors, Antonio is a decent person at heart, trying (though misguidedly) to do the decent thing. As the film begins, Antonio finds himself in the situation we all dread most: one where there's no more wiggle room, and our little schemes have left us in the situation where someone must be hurt by our behavior - and our only choice is which one that will be.
In the end, Antonio makes a choice, which is perhaps the best choice he's made in a long time. The ending is not happy, and Antonio's problems are not solved... but they are acknowledged, in a new and fuller way, which shows just a smidgeon of progress, and perhaps an even smaller smidgeon of hope. Antonio's final choice is a step towards honesty, towards self-respect; away from trying to be something he's not and towards allowing his descendents to take pride in his ancestors.
We all struggle, often daily, with our own identities in the face of a complex and ever-changing world, and with our often unwitting capability to bring light or darkness into the lives of those around us. Hopefully, "Heirlooms" will lead us all to think, if even for just a few moments, about our own self-deceptions and destructive behaviors, and about some steps we can take to begin cleansing ourselves of them.

The famous Salkantay Trek (or Salcantay Trek), named among the 25 best Treks in the World, by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine, is a trek open to everybody, with no limitation on spaces or permits (at least for now). *******www.pumasadventures****/index.html , *******www.inca-trail-peru****/ , *******www.salkantay-peru****/ , *******www.lares-peru****/ Connecting the city of Mollepata, Cusco with Machu Picchu, the Salkantay Trek is an ancient and remote footpath located in the same region.
Salkantay is an outstanding glacier-capped summit worshipped for thousands of years by local indians. The name Salkantay is a quechua word meaning "Savage Mountain".
Classic inca Trail 4 days / 3 nights
This is our most popular trek and offers visitors the most economical method to trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu . A pool service is basically a group that you can just join. You’ll be trekking with like-minded hikers from all over the world, a great chance to meet new friends and travel companions. The Inca Trail is Peru ’s best known hike and perhaps in the World too. This 43km trek combines visits to archaeological sites, amazing mountain scenery and lush cloud forest rich in native plants such as orchids with many different species of hummingbirds.
Group Size: Typical group size 10-12.
Maximum : 16 persons.
Departures : Everyday throughout the year (except Sundays and the month of February when the trail is closed).
Recommended months to do the hike : From April to December.
DAY 01 : KM 82 – WAYLLABAMBA
Between 5:00-05:30 am we will pick you up from your hotel and travel by private bus to Piskacuchu (2700m) which is a small community located 82 along the railroad from Cusco to Machu Picchu (also known simply as km82). Buses normally stop at the town of Urubamba in the SacredValley for about an hour or so to give people the opportunity to have breakfast. Hikers cross the VilcanotaRiver and follow the trail to the right as it climbs steeply up from the river. After passing through the small village of Miskay, the ruins of the Inca hill fort of Huillca Raccay come into view high above the mouth of the river Cusichaca (’happy bridge’). It is a simple descent down to the Cusichaca River . From parts of this trail there are great views of the Cordillera Urubamba and the snow capped peak of Veronica 5860m. You’ll also get a great view over the extensive Inca ruins of Llactapata (also known as Patallacta on some maps). Llactapata 2750m means ‘upper town’ in Quechua and was first discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911 and was primarily an agricultural station used to supply Machu Picchu with maize, the staple crop of the Incas. The settlement comprised over one hundred buildings, houses for the workers and soldiers, including five baths. For a further 7 km the path follows the left bank of the river up to the small village of Wayllabamba (3,000m). The name in Quechua means ‘grassy plain’. This is the last place along the trek that you can buy snacks and drinks.
DAY 02 : WAYLLABAMBA – PACAMAYO
We will wake up at about 6:00 am and after breakfast we will leave Wayllabamba behind and begin the most difficult part of the trek. Following the left bank of the Llulluchayoc River for about 1 hour brings you to ‘Tres Piedras’ (three stones) and a small bridge over the Huayruro river. The stream is named after the Huayruro which is an ornamental tree. It’s seeds are red and black. Many of the porters from the Ollantaytambo district are also known as Huayruro because of their traditional red and black ponchos! A little further on you’ll enter a beautiful cloud forest passing a waterfall. A further three hours trek through steepening woods and increasingly spectacular terrain brings you to the tree line and a meadow known as Llulluchapampa (3,680m). It is another 1½ hours climb to the first and highest pass of the trail (Abra de Huarmihuañusca or ‘Dead Woman’s Pass) at 4,200m. Once at the top hikers can celebrate having completed the most difficult section of the trail. The decent from the pass is steep although not difficult, following the trail on the left side of the valley to the valley floor and to the 2nd night’s campsite at Pacamayo (3,600m). There are toilet facilities here.
DAY 03 : PACAMAYO – WIÑAYWAYNA
This day is the longest but also the most impressive and most interesting due to the many Inca ruins that we will visit along the way. From the campsite at Pacamayo it takes about an hour to climb up to the ruins of Runkuracay (3800m). These small circular ruins occupy a commanding position overlooking the Pacamayo valley below. Another 45 minute hike will bring you to the top of the second pass: Abra de Runkuracay (4,000m). At last you’ll feel that you are walking along the trail of the Incas with paving, for the most part, being original. The descent down the steps from the pass is steep so take care. This section of the trail, up till the 3rd pass, is particularly beautiful as the path crosses high stone embankments and skirts deep precipices. After about 1 hour from the 2nd pass you’ll arrive at Sayacmarca (3624m) by way of a superbly designed stone staircase. The name Sayacmarca means ‘InaccessibleTown’ and describes the position of the ruins perfectly, protected on three sides by sheer cliffs. No one knows the exact purpose of these ruins. From here on the path descends into magnificent cloud forest full of orchids, hanging mosses, tree ferns and flowers, passing through an impressive Inca tunnel, carved into the rock, on the way. The trail then climbs up to the 3rd pass (3,700m). The view from the pass offers excellent views of several snow-capped peaks including Salkantay (6,180m) and Veronica (5,750m). A few minutes after the pass is Phuyupatamarca, the most impressive Inca ruin so far. The name means ‘Town in the Clouds’. Access to the ruins is down a steep flight of stairs passing six ‘Inca Baths’ probably used for the ritual worship of water. Leaving the site via an impressive Inca staircase you descend a thousand or so steps. Be careful with your knees which will feel the strain by the end of the day. After about an hour of walking through cloudforest you may just be able to see the tin roof of the Trekkers Hostel at Wiñay Wayna, although it probably won’t be for another 2 hours until you arrive. Wiñay Wayna is the last official campsite before Machu Picchu . There is a restaurant where you can purchase drinks and even a well deserved cold beer, as well as hot showers ($1.5) and toilet facilities. A short trail leaves from the southern end of the hostel to the ruins of Wiñay Wayna. The name in Quechua means ‘forever young’ and is named after a variety of pink orchid which grows here. The ruins comprise magnificent agricultural terraces set in an impressive location. There are also many buildings of good quality stonework and a sequence of 10 baths, suggesting that the site was probably a religious center associated with the worship of water. Ritual cleansing may have taken place here for pilgrims on the final leg of the Inca trail to Machu Picchu.
DAY 04 : WIÑAY WAYNA – MACHU PICCHU.
e’ll wake early at 4.15am , have breakfast and set off on the trail again by 5.15am to get to Machu Picchu before sunrise. The sky starts getting light by 5:30am and the first rays of the sun reach Machu Picchu at about 7:00am .
The trail contours a mountainside and drops into cloudforest before coming to an almost vertical flight of 50 steps leading up to the final pass at Inti Punku (Sun Gate). From this point you will be able to see sunrise over Machu Picchu which is spread out before, an unforgettable experience. From Inti Punku we will descend for about 40 minutes to Machu Picchu.
When you arrive at the ruins you’ll have plenty of time to take photos of Machu Picchu from the classic view point. Most groups wait at this point for a while so most of your photos should be ‘tourist free’. When the group is back together again we descend to the main entrance where we will have to register and where you can safely leave your large backpacks. You can also go to the toilet and have a quick coffee in the restaurant just outside the entrance. With just your daypack on the group will re-enter the ruins with the same guide for a complete tour of the major sectors.
The tour takes about 2 hours so by about 10:30 you’ll have free time to explore the ruins alone. The train back to Cusco departs from Aguas Calientes which is the nearest village to the ruins of Machu Picchu.
The train departs at approximately 16:30 (time can vary) and you’ll arrive back in Cusco for about 21:00 . Included in our standard service are the tourist bus from Machu Picchu down to Aguas Calientes, the train back to Cusco and a transfer from the station to you hotel. Sometimes, however, we buy train tickets just back as far as Ollantaytambo and then bring you back to your hotel in Cusco by private bus. The later method usually works out about 30 minutes quicker. We suggest that after visiting Machu Picchu that you take the bus down to Aguas Calientes by 15:30 at the latest (assuming train departs at 16:30 ). Buses depart every 15 minutes. Check with the guide for actual times. This leaves you plenty of time at the ruins to climb Wayna Picchu (the mountain that you see in the background). It takes about 1 hour to climb and 40 minutes to descend. Most people, however, leave the ruins at about 13:30 and return to Aguas Calientes for lunch (at the ruins there is only one restaurant and it’s very expensive). There are several small restaurants in Aguas Calientes to satisfy all budgets. You may also wish to visit to the town’s famous thermal springs which feel great after finishing the trail. Entrance to the springs costs US$ 2, allow 2 hours to really enjoy them.

The Cathedral of Puno is an 18th century church representing Andean Baroque construction.
It was built in 1757 on an ancient ceremonial site known as Supay Kancha, Quechua for Circle of the Devil by Peruvian master stonemason Simon de Asto.
The Cathedral's construction was underwritten by wealthy miners; their influence is reflected in entrance thats detailed in silver.
Much of the Cathedral's original artwork was destroyed by fire in 1930.
The main marble altar was designed by one of Peru's pre-eminent architects Emilio Hart-Terré, who died in 1983.
It features two religious icons dating back to the earliest years of Peru's Spanish Colonial period: La Virgin de los Remedios, or "Virgin of Remedies," and El Señor del Quinario, also known as "The Lord of the Bullet."
The name comes from a violent confrontation between rival factions of miners in the 18th century that resulted in a stray bullet that is still lodged in the painting. The Lord of the Bullet is venerated by local farmers, who appeal to the icon for rain.
