Over 500 years ago, the Inca Empire stretched from the south of what is now Colombia all the ways to Chile. Its expansion was made possible by the Incas’ extensive road network and bridge-building skills. On the Rio Apurimac in Peru, the old heritage is being preserved to this day: Each year, the communities in the surrounding area meet here to rebuild a bridge made of woven grass. The master builder in charge of the rope bridge, 60-year-old Victoriano Arisapana, has taken over the tradition of the “chakaruwac”, the “bridge engineer”, from his father. Who will take his place in future?
