In my last post I let the pictures do the talking. They do say a lot (1000 × 10 = 10000), in fact almost as much as I write for a more normal post. But what they say is purely... descriptive. It's not the thought-inspiring, introspective type of thing I like to aim for when I can. Sure, pictures of impoverished children and stuff can make you question your own life, but I just shared a bunch of pictures of mountains. If that helped you realize some profound truth, ...
... then I moved out to "Sol y Luna". The reason...I checked first that place because it had been recommended to me by Sean. It is truth, the place is beautiful, outside from time and town, very quiet....but very commercial!!! Unfriendly staff with uniform, it is not like a hostel, it is a hotel...everything is expensive.

... following day's trip to the thermal baths. To get to the baths we had to get a jeep/willy for about an hour. We shared it with Niall, Nando and Laura from our hostel. It was a bumpy ride and we had to hold on tight (to the willy haha). It was very quiet when we got there and we could tell it was going to rain. However, when you're in the equivalent of a hot garden pond (minus the fish), it's actually brilliant when it rains! We tried out the natural ...
