tke a look at valle de Calamuchita

if you keep going south to the valle de Calamuchita in a small place where there is a dam at Embalse del Rio Tercero you may pay a visit to a nuclear power house built by AECL (I believe you know what that means Atomic Energy of Canada Limited) in the 1980's. It's a nice place for camping on the lake.

The Mom made a beef stew, sort of, it had a corn meal base, similar to eating a cross between cornmeal and cream of wheat, the beef was really good! One of the better meals of my trip. I really lucked in when I found this place. Very kind people.

I went out this afternoon and filled the bike with gas and had a brief ride around this little town, It's still raining so I only went for a few minutes. There are dozens of motels here. It is a Spa type area.

This morning when I woke up, oddly enough, the swimming pool was empty. It had been full, and warm last night. This morning they cleaned the pool. Then they started filling it with hot water out of a big fire hose type of fixture. Turns out we are in some kind of geo-thermal area. All the hotels have pools. That's the big attraction here. The name of the town is Termas de Rio Honda.
