Holidays ~ paintings ~ part II

We hit the road again. A volcano and a lunch were waiting for us. At this point, we felt we were pretty lucky to have Inocencia as a cook. She took a good care of us and our food. And she also amused us with her stories.

It was pretty hot and we were pretty tired that day. Our driver parked under a big rock, Inocencia made us lunch and we went around the place like little kids, jumping, dancing and making jokes.

We made a stop in a very little town and bought some beers for dinner.

We were supposed to spend the night in a “salt hotel” and were very curious about it.

The hotel was made entirely of salt. Its walls, tables, chairs, beds, everything !

The good news was that there was hot water!! I mean, it was scarce but hot!! and we all took a short shower. It felt really good. Another surprise was that there was enough electricity to charge the batteries! Longer than the previous night.

We went for a walk, then came back for dinner and were up till the electricity went off.

The following day we were going to visit one of the most amazing places!

  1. This is just crazy! Salt beds? Was there any distinctive smell in this place?

    The smoking volcano would make me a bit nervous!

    I don’t understand how they did the salt drippings from the ceiling? Do they make them and then put them up?

    • Yes, there was a distinctive smell but I cannot find the word to describe it, it was like when you go to the beach? that smell in the towel you used to lie in the sun and on the shirt you put on after bathing in the ocean? something like that.

      Funny, I didn´t think much of the volcano, for some reason it never crossed my mind, I mean the danger? It has been smoking for ages, I guess I consider it a “cigarette addict” LOL

      I didn´t ask about the drippings from the ceiling, I mean, how they were made but they must have made them first and then put them up, just like the rest of the ornaments. Statues, shelves, ashtrays, etc.
