When travelling I like to do a little bit of research before leaving, and perusing the Lonely Planet website I came across this hotel-in-the-mountain that they described as decidedly sci-fi and very nice indeed. So when we visited Pumamarca I couldn´t help but take that advice and stay in the pod as I came to call it. The great thing about the pod, is that it is made of adobe, which keeps it cool in the day under the strong sunshine, and at night, the massively thick walls release the heat to keep it warm and toasty. A little bit of luxury in the heart of the mountain.
I am an Australian who has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for four years. My perception of the city has changed as I have adapted to my environment and new home. I am somewhere between a tourist and a local and find beauty in my everyday environment.
