    Socaire

    December 1, 2017 in Chile ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    From the altiplanic lakes, we went to the nearby village of Socaire.
    It is a tiny hamlet that lives from selling lunch to tourists-it usually includes home-grown potatoes, big beans, carrots, and quinoa, plus a few other things. All these vegetables are grown locally in the oasis.
    We stopped here for 20-30 minutes. Our guide pointed out the various plants they were growing.

    Socaire church

    December 1, 2017 in Chile ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    We also went to the church made of red and white volcanic stones with a roof made from dried cactus. It had a very unique iconography inside. The church bell tower has an interesting legend that any woman entering there would get pregnant so now it is kept locked permanently. 🙄🙄Read more
