Persistence of Time {1911}

Mauricio Sanhueza

As a Peruvian I consider one of the most important passages of this year was the rediscovery of Machu Picchu. As the official story was Hiram Bingham, an American professor at Princeton University, who broke the news to the western world. Always been a controversy about this "rediscovery" because it is said that the inhabitants of the area always knew of the ruins, but in Lima, the capital city of Peru, nobody cared about it. Someone had to come from a first world country to become an international event. This is my tribute to a city that seems not to have aged and it can be there 500 or 1000 years, which is why the name "Persistence of Time". Something that refuses to die. They always been spoken about those ruins, but from personal experience, when I saw it for first time , I found an abandoned city.
