Video of the new Caminito del Rey. (sneak preview)

Some people just can’t wait till the official opening of the Caminito del Rey 🙂 … Although the quality of this video could be better it is fantastic to get a sneak preview as to what the shiny new Caminito del Rey looks like… That said the guy filming it was very lucky not to get in trouble and faced with a hefty fine for entering the prohibited area… I was there on Saturday and the police stopped me from going too close sigh!

Opening date is still to be announced but at the book launch the other day APRIL 2015 was mentioned

The Bridge of San Luis Rey – Partly filmed at El Chorro

Interesting to see that this film was shot partly in the El Chorro area… Actually I enjoyed the film

In early 19th Century Peru an old Inca rope bridge collapses, plunging five travelers to their deaths in the Andean chasm below. Brother Juniper, who was within minutes of being on the bridge himself, becomes obsessed with discovering how five people of differing class and circumstances came to be on the bridge at that moment. The Catholic friar wants to know if it was mere existential happenstance or part of God’s cosmic plan. After researching the lives of the victims for five years and publishing his findings in a book, he is accused of heresy by the worldly Archbishop of Lima and is put on trial for his life by the Inquisition.
