I have made a pact with myself to appreciate beauty when I encounter it and I have decided to follow a path in pursuit of beauty. This has led me to some wonderful places, where I have made some great friends, and have had amazing coincidences. The wind is alive and it blows me in the right direction. I decided to come to this volcano, which isn't as popular as Aranal, but I chose it because of the waterfall. Two rivers come together to make a waterfall and because of the special minerals in the water, the water is turquoise. Truly turquoise. It was beautiful. The cabinas I stayed in were heated by fireplaces and lit by candlelight. It was the nicest place on earth. There was also a rock hot tub that was heated by a fireplace. The staff cooked all the meals for you, made the fires and there was even a guide to take you through the volcano and to take you horse back riding. This wasn't any ordinary horseback riding, it was an adventure. We would go in full sprints and go up steep ravines and river beds, etc. It was breathtaking and exhilerating. The craziest thing about this weekend was that I got to hang out with Julia Stiles the whole weekend. She showed up the same day we did. Remember that this place is in the middle of nowhere. Because the enviornment was so intimate, we really got to spend alot of time with her and her group. We ate all our meals together, hiked the volcano together and road horses. What a trip. It is just another example of amazing things that have happened to me on my adventure. The path less traveled has led me to the most amazing places and people. In the path I trust and beauty I follow.
