Matea is a Peruvian woman from a small town called "Pata Cancha'' in Ollantaytambo, Cusco, Peru.
My partner and I went to Pata Cancha in search for a lake in the highest point of the Andes. Instead, we found stories and we met Matea who invited us to stay at her place.
Matea showed us the land, the trees and flowers. At the end of the day, she took us to a different place covered with dried grass. There, she sat and softly took some of it away to let us see the yellow potato she had hidden. It is Matea's gold.
