Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia.
Well, as usual, lots of things happened this year, we finally settled down in our new home, after almost two years of roaming. I learnt to cook new recipes. I also learnt that I can be a kindergarten teacher if necessary. I did a lot of crafts for the house. I grew my own lettuce. The winter, after there months of ice, fortunately ended! and the warm wind of the summer is blowing.
I tried doing bokeh!
I love the sun in the house during winter mornings…
Last week I posted a picture of a reflection for the Liquid Travel Theme. I´ll post it again (because I like it so much), but there´re two new reflections for you.
This is a tricky one, I´m thankful of almost everything in my life! so I should post a thousand photos, don´t worry… I won´t.
I´m thankful about:
- My health and my beloved ones helth as well (everybody is ok!)
- I´m in love with him (and so is he with me!)
- My freedom
- My travels
- My friends
- My house
- My job
- My finances
Maybe there´s more, but I don´t want to bore you. So here are the pics:
Go wherever I want…
With my love…
There´s no greener green than the rice fields.
We´ve got something big around here. It´s our beautiful glacier! Perito Moreno Glacier is about 80km from where I live, and it´s the main attraction of this tourist point. Why? because is one of the few (if not only) glaciers that can be visited without having to take a boat, or hike for hours, or do anything physically demanding. You just get to the parking lot and there it is, and if you fell adventurous, you just take the stairs and walk the 5km of paths to get different views. It is also the only glacier in the National Park (which has more than 300 of these) that is not shrinking, which is good news now a day!
But the real show takes place every couple of years (some say it is every four years, but nature has its own clock). It is when the glacier reaches the peninsula and blocks the water flow from the left arm to the one you see on the right, which leads to the main body of the Argentino Lake. A huge mass of ice is accumulated there and the water from the left pushes for a couple of months, until one day it makes its way through and starts leaking to the right side. That´s when the expectation begins, now the water erodes the ice making a beautiful ¨bridge¨ and everybody waits to see the big rupture.
I almost forget about the big thing here, it is 250 km².

I took the panoramic picture above last month. The picture below was taken on January, when the ice was reaching the peninsula.
Happy, that´s how this kids were when I took them them the pictures they wanted (and I wanted too). This was one of those strange episodes in Asia, they didn´t speak english, we didn´t speak their language, but we managed to communacate. And this is they and I happy.
It was hard to me to find something mine, I own some objects of course, but I´m not too much into possessions, I rather travel. After giving it a thought I found that mine are my cameras, with wich I always travel (not all of them at the same time).
