Most people don't know who Ricardo Espinosa Reyes is, and that is for most South Americans too. Also known as "El Caminante" ('The Rambler'), Ricardo Espinosa Reyes, after walking the coast of Peru for many months, decided to explore the "Tahuantinsuyu" (this is the name of the Inca Empire by Incas). He wanted to explore the Qhapaq Ñan (Royal Road in Quechua, the Inca language).
Espinosa with is singular trek, along the Andes road of the Qhapaq Ñan, was a pioneer and covered the stretch between Quito in Equator and La Paz, Bolivia. He walked from May to December 1999. Which brought back to life the ancient Inca road and created a excitement around the old road system. Since then, the dream to bring back this emblem of the Tahuantinsuyu as surfaced and much work as been done towards that.
