Photo dump: Pondering Purmamarca

Leaving the lush green hills of Salta behind, the bus chugged it’s way higher some 1,000 metres to Purmamarca – population 350. Nothing to do was exactly what I was looking for.

Cactus covered barren mountains tower over the mud brick town, changing colour as quickly as the light.

I found a room to stay in a local house – Casa de Hugo. Being the only guest to enjoy the earth hewn walls and full moon that night; I was fortunate enough to be treated to a musical repertoire of flute and guitar. I revelled in the feeling of complete unhurriedness.

Waking early, I climbed high enough to witness the day dawn on Cerro de Siete Colores, or the Hill of seven colours. The sun remained hidden by heavy cloud so the intensity of colour was muted, but the landscape was still incredibly beautiful. Most people fly through on a bus and stop for an hour, but staying longer to observe the impact of the changing light is completely worth it. Kris
