  • Work already for many years in Chuqui, and really see the changes since 2000 to 2017 feels the history. Essential to know what almost a ghost town that keeps those houses and buildings of the past as a signal of what was and what is to come later... Sunday represents Chuqui, their legacy, their sizes and defeats also... today after coordination there are internal visits.
