Where I stayed
La Florida cabins

You realise when you go to the most peaceful places that the concept of "silence" does not really exist...

But the noise was very relaxing...insects, animals, water...excellent stuff. We even suffered local problems, such as electricity and water cuts...the horror! :-)

We have settled into the mood of doing nothing, apart from cooking, exchanging a book, going to internet for a few minutes...difficult tasks.

Just three pictures today, two of the so called "cabin". Its all for us, including the private garden with fruit trees (we collected some lemons, mandarins and oranges this morning for lunch). Every few minutes we receive the visit of the dogs. "Chapita" appears on the picture and is the friendliest one - especially after receiving some treats during our breakfast time.

Talking about breakfast, its probably the first time we have managed to have cereals with milk since Chile. Most hotels and coffee shops serve eggs and bread, while milk is difficult to transport with us and keep refrigerated.

To end, a local story that Holger told us this morning. It used to be a tradition around this area to "ask a girl" if she was interested in a boy by throwing a small stone at her and managing to hit her. If she "replied" by throwing a stone back...then she was interested. They seem to practice this form of flirting in some areas of Croydon in UK.

To much writing. We need a rest....
