Las Grutas de Tolantongo

A new weekend adventure

So here is a summary of what has happened during the last three days.

The Grutas were actually a bit dangerous. I was wearing flipflops but due to the strong under current I lost them in a super dark grotto. This has also led to some cuts on my feet, as well as an awefully big and black-purple-red and stripped bruise on my thigh and mildly infected cuts on my knees as I have lost balance a couple of times due to the pain in my feet and fell on sharp edges of stones. Aimé from Argentina also lost one shoe. She and a few others discovered one of mine later. Unfortunately we both were left with a right-foot shoe, so none of us could walk comfortably anymore. That's only fair, huh?! :D haha Other people were wearing normal shoes, but the pair I had with me in Mexico was unsuitable for that purpose (yes, i travel light). The scenery though was beautiful! Swimming in beautiful stone tubs on mountains so high up and overlooking the surrounding nature was an incredible experience! And I looooved the strong massage by the waterfalls!

Here are some impressions.

This is from the picture time! Our tutor Adrian was not included as part of our group by the university administration, so we did it ourselves instead!!large_DSCF0564.jpglarge_DSCF0560.jpg
