Marcos and I drove up to La Huerta with the idea of exploring
the country side. We'd heard of the Petroglyphs but
had no idea where they were. Before marching off
into the unknown we decided to check out downtown La Huerta and
thats when we ran into the very helpful tourist office that gave
us directions, pamphlets and a six page printout from their Web
Across from the
Plaza is the Restaurant Colonial which specializes in Chacales,
a river crayfish. Everyone was eating these things
but we ordered a typical lunch not knowing what we were missing.
Chacales are more plentyful in the rainy season but this
restaurant seems to have their own source.
Even though the town
dates back to Colonial days the ruin of a church was only built
in the mid 20th century. When it was destroyed by an
earthquake it was not considered historical enough to rebuild.
The new church next door did not deserve a foto.
