Chapter I. I met Belicena Villca when she was interned in the Neuropsychiatrie Hospital «Dr. Javier Patrón Isla» in the city of Salta, under diagnosis of irreversible senile dementia.

Naturally, it was not possible to give credit to her statements, not only due to her diseased condition, but for the tenor of them, which were incredible and hallucinative: her writings would be never qualified, with more justice, as an own story of a madwoman. ...
