We arrived back in Humahuaca after the 3 hours exhausting trip from Iruya. It was, one more time, diffuclut to find somewhere to sleep (with the exception of Bruno, Fede and Laura who had already reserved place).
So we parted one more time to look for a place. I went with Gustavo and walked with our backpacks around the whole town and we hadn't found anything. So we were planning to leave and go directly to La Quiaca or Yavi.
But when we went to tell the others the new plan, Diego had found a place for everybody: a big room for all of us.
Once we were accommodated in our room, we walked around and went to have lunch in a restaurant where folkloric music was played, and then we went to a peņa.
The next day we said goodbye to Laura and Bruno and we visited the interesting places in town. We went up the steps to the monument to the Heroes of Independence (a huge monument representing the heroic facts in which unknown people from Jujuy were involved). Behind the monument there’s the local cemetery, where we got amazed of the brilliant colors used to decorate the tombs.
We went down the steppes and visited the main square where every day at 12 a statue of San Francisco Solano which moves to give a blessing to people in the square (it isn’t a wonderful thing, but local people like it). We visited the beautiful church which has many gold-made details inside and we went for something to eat. After that I didn’t feel like doing anything else, so I just took had a rest. I wasn’t feeling well, but lots of water and a good sleeping were a good medicine.
On Saturday I woke up late. I was feeling better so I went with the guys to have something for dinner.
In the afternoon we parted again. I decided to go with Fede and Lau for a horse ride in the Quebrada de Humahuaca. It was very nice getting on a horse to the top of the gills and seeing the wonderful view.
At night we went to the same folkloric restaurant and watched to Boca-Racing football match (tied 1-1).
The next day we said goodbye to Lau, Fede and Diego and the rest of us (Eva, Gustavo, Ariel and I) took tickets to La Quiaca. When we were waiting for the bus, we met two girls who traveled with us to the northern city: Yael and Claire (both from Buenos Aires).
