L'autobús ens deix a Chataquila, una ermita a 3600m per on i passa el camino pre-hispánico o també conegut com a Camino del Inca. Dinem allí i comencem el descens fins al petit poble de Chaunaca. Camí empedrat en molts trams i fent els 600m de desnivell molt suaus.

Al arribar el poble, el més difícil es dir a on és el poble... m’explico, hi ha moltes agrupacions de cases disperses per la vall i confon bastant... Preguntem on podem preguntar per acampar, i ens diuen que anem a l’escola a preguntar. L’escola es el centre neuràlgic del poble. Hi ha l’escola, el metge, el dentista i la sala on es reuneix la comunitat al voltant del camp de futbito.
Hi ha reunió de la comunitat, però ens diuen que podem acampar lliurement al costat de l’església.
Coneixem la metgessa i la mestra del poble i xerrem de la vida que es porta en aquesta vall.
El matí següent, desprès d’esmorzar passem a veure una classe a l’escola ja que la mestre ens avia dit que podíem passar-hi. La veiem des de fora, no volem molestar.
Apareixen pel poble una parella de francesos, el Jermmy i la Cecilia. Els vam conèixer al mercat de Potosí!

Pleguem el campament i fem camí cap al següent poble, Marawa. El Camí va fent un puja i baixa que amb la companyia del sol ens deix fosos. El paisatge és molt bonic, una mica de sembrats amb unes formacions ben curioses de muntanyes rocoses.
A Marawa acampem amb els francesos al pati de l’escola. Sopem amb ells un menjar que ens ha preparat la Dora, una dona que cuida a uns treballadors que construeixen un internat al costat de l’escola.

La nit es preciosa, el cel ideal per veure les estrelles. Veiem unes quantes estrelles fugaces abans d’anar a dormir.
A mitja nit ens desperten tres treballadors que estan construint un internat al costat de l’escola ben beguts... ens sentim desprotegits, però al final no passa res.
Al llevar-nos, esmorzem i pleguem el campament ràpid. Volem agafar un transport des del poble següent de Quila Quila que està a unes 2 o 3 hores caminant.
El camí fins a Quila Quila també és ben bonic. Casetes d’adobe pel camí al costat de les parts sembrades, vistes a les formacions rocoses que envolten Marawa i un caminet que va descendint fins a Quila Quila.

Arribem 10 minuts abans que el camió que va cap a Sucre, ens hagués agradat una mica més de temps per conèixer el poble, però es l’únic transport que hi ha al dia.

We take the bus and finally leave us at Chataquila, a small church at 3600m where pass the camino pre-hispánico or also called Camino del Inca. We have lunch there and we start to descends till the village of Chaunaca. Path made with stones in most of the way and descending 600m very lightly.
When we arrive at the village, the more difficult is say where the village...is I explain, there are a lot of groups of houses along the valley and is very confusing... We ask where we can camp, and they tell us that we should go to ask at the school. The school is the centre of the activity of the valley. There is the school, the doctor, the dentist and the room to do the assemblies of the community.
There is happening a meeting of the community, but they tell us that we can camp near the church.
We meet the doctor and the teacher of the village and we talk about the live style at the valley.
In the morning, after the breakfast we go at the school because we arranged with the teacher to see how they work. Ana is teacher and she is interest to see how they work. The class is on and we don’t want to interrupt.
And then a couple of French’s appear at the village, Jermmy and Cecilia. We meet them at the market in Potosí.
We pack the camp and start walking to the next village, Marawa. The path is going up and down with the company of the strong sun. The landscape is beautiful, some felts with a small house and the rocky mountains at the background.
At Marawa we camp with the French’s at the school. We have dinner with them at Dora’s room. She is a woman that takes care of some workers that are building a new school.
The night is wonderful, the sky is great to see the stars and after a while the moon appears.
In the middle of the night we wake up with the noise of tree workers that are completely drank... The two Ana’s were sleeping in a class (more warm) and they move in the tent. We were tens all night.
When we wake up, we have breakfast and pack the camp fast. We want to take a transport in Quila Quila that is at 2 o 3 hours walking.
The path to Quila Quila is the nicer. Houses of adobe next to the paths with some of the land as felts with views at the rocky formations.
We arrive just 10 minutes before the truck goes to Sucre, we really want some more time in the village, but is the only transport for today.
