Luego de viajar por miles de kilómetros las cenizas del volcán Puyehue (Chile) llegaron a La Salamora.  Lo que veíamos desde los decks de La Salamora era una neblina muy cargada que no permitía divisar las cadenas de sierras que nos rodean.  El atardecer fue opacado por las cenizas, recordándonos un atardecer previo a una tormenta.  Todo quedó cubierto por una capa fina de polvillo volcánico.  A pesar del viento que soplaba como es de costumbre en La Salamora la ceniza volcánica del Puyehue cubrió toda la región.

 

Pan-American Congress of Infect logy

From April 7 the Pan-American Congress of Infect logy took place  at the Conrad Hotel of Punta del Este.  The Salamora along with other rural tourism establishments was at a booth promoting its offer of Rural - Eco tourism and Equestrian activities.   Success and interest were the common feelings concerning this other type of tourism

 

2011 Eastern Week

Once again  La Salamora had the joy of sharing  its peace, natural beauty and hospitality with several guests this past Eastern week .   Horseback riding, hiking, native  flora and fauna workshops, approach to the horse, rides, starry nights, dazzling full moons coming from behind the hills  were some of the activities that our guests enjoyed.  In the evenings, talks by the fire place and table games, gave us the chance to enjoy the simple things and the company of people who share their life experiences. A delicious paella was served on Friday at noon and the tradition to look after  Eastern chocolate rabbits made the fun of all of us on Sunday
