We drove for over an hour. The landscape was changing constantly. We finally saw something that looked like flat salts from the distance but when we got there we discovered that it was not salt if not soap. You cannot imagine our surprise. We thought it was a joke but when we mixed it with water we realized it was not. It was so strange. We spent some time walking around the blocks of soap and playing with them like kids.
Our next stop was going to be a surprise too. We went to an area of geysers. It was so strange, like being in the moon or in any other planet but not the earth. We walked around the geysers very carefully since from time to time the smoke didn´t let you see what it was right in front of you and those holes were filled with very hot lava, it was burning all the time.
From the geysers to the desert again, a place called “Dali rocks”. The mountains that sorrounded those rocks had incredible colors, they looked like paintings really.
We passed by more lakes and our final stop was Laguna Roja (red lagoon).
Our second shelter was much better. And we were able to be in a sort of gallery with illuminated with a bulb so we could play cards and talk and drink coffee.
We wanted to see the sunrise in that red lake, we had this feeling it was going to be fantastic. So we set our clocks very early, told our cook our plans so she made us breakfast earlier and went to bed.
Another day another adventure and more places to discover.
