Today we decided to take a break from the hostel work and make a small trip into the national reserve of Paracas.It has been a long time since we have gone into such a beautiful place having it right next to us. We started by visiting the museum right after the entrance of the reserve. A newly build museum half done but very interesting. It shows all the story of how the world and the tectonic plates have moved generating certain areas near the coast. Into the museum there are amazing pictures of birds and all the animals that live in the area where we are. They explained inside how the national reserve was established in 1975.
Trip To Laguna Moron
Today was thought to be a normal day at the hostel. People were getting to their places to complete their tasks. Something was different today which they did not expect. We decided to go take a visit to a majestically place near the outsides of Paracas called Laguna Moron. Such a magical an mystical place, entering the soothing waters of the lake and doing paddle in an oasis in middle of the desert is an un-explainable sensation. The calmness and relaxing sensation of the place is simply amazing. Everybody had an awesome moment and saw the beauty of the place.
