January 28th of 1939, the thinker, philosopher and  spanish  essayist, Maria Zambrano (1904-1991) crossed the  French border with her  mother, her  sister and the husband of this by first time, during Spanish Civil War. After a brief stay in Paris, Zambrano is headed  to Mèxic, where she remained a long time, after  Staying  a few weeks  New York, La  Havana and Puerto Rico.

After several years, Zambrano returned to Paris where her  mother died, and decided  to stay close  to her sister in her  apartment in the Rue de l 'Université, París.  Zambrano 's  exile, is  physically,  cartographically and photographically  followed from  the beginning of the street where she lived in Paris,  Registering  córners of the street from the beginning until the end of it.  

Then, I repeated  the  same "route" since the beginning of the street and the country where I used to live up to its end, and on the street where I currently live, until the end of this. Each journey undertaken in the three cities, is also represented by the exact distances Expressed in coordenates, from Lima to Paris, Barcelona to Paris and Barcelona to Lima.
