photos: Aguas Bellas

Weekend before last we hiked with two of our fellow PCV friends to Aguas Bellas, an isolated spot on the west coast of Santiago. While the east coast of the island has two large towns, this side of the island is sparsely populated, with expansive plateaus that are interrupted by canyons that wedge up from the ocean. At this time of year, everything is dry except for the Acacia trees. We descended to the water through a canyon bottom from the outskirts of Assomada, and then headed north along the coast to Ribeira da Barca, where we caught a ride back to the city.
