Rano sme sa pekne vyspali, nikto nas nebudil, zistili sme ze sme si ustlali priamo na mravenisku, ale dnu sa im dostat nepodarilo. Z Tilcary sme kracali do dalsej dedinky - Maimara, kde mal byt jeden z najfotogenickejsich cintorinov podla nasho sprievodcu. Cintorin vyzeral uplne obycajne ako mnoho inych ktore sme videli predtym, nebyt sprievodcu ani po nom nepatrame. Potom sme zacali stopovat do Purmamarci, ktora bola vzdialena asi 20 km. Nevedeli sme ako to pojde a boli sme pripraveni celu vzdialenost odchodit, hlavne sme si vsak chceli skusit ako to vyzera so stopovanim v Argentine. Na zaciatku to vyzeralo beznadejne, ale po vyse hodine nam konecne zastavil maly nakladiak a zobral nas az do Purmamarci. V Purmamarce sa nachadza Cerro de los Siete Colores /vrch siedmych farieb/ a naozaj hral roznymi farbami - cervena, purpurova, oranzova, zlta, biela, ruzova a v pozadi za nim tmavo seda a fialova /na fotkach to az tak nevidiet, v skutocnosti boli farby ovela zivsie/. Okolo vrchu viedla cesticka, tak sme sa nou presli a potom este na blizky kopec z ktore bol pekny vyhlad na Cerro, ale tiez na nase dnesne miesto pre nas stan. Neskor sme zistili ze nase vyhliadnute miesto na stan bolo dobre, pekne obrastene travou, takze nas vobec nebolo vidiet.


In the morning we slept very well, no one woke us up. Later we found out we build our tent on ants nest, but they didnt manage to get in. From Tilcara we walked to the next village - Maimara, where we should find one of most scenic cementeries according to our guide. The cementery looked very common, same as many cementeries we had seen before and without our guide we wouldn look for it. After that we started with hitchhiking to Purmamarca, 20 km away. We didnt know how we get on, so we were ready to walk whole distance, but also we just wanted to try out how it is with hitchhiking in Argentina. In the beggining it didnt look very promising, but in the end we were lucky and a truck took us right into Purmamarca. There is Cerro de los Siete Colores/hill of seven colors/ in Purmamarca and really we could see many different colors - red, purple, orange, yellow, white, pink and behind that dark grey and lila /in doesnt really show on picture, the color were much more vibrant in reality/. There was a path around the hill, so we took it and later climbed up on the little hill for a better view of Cerro, where we also saw a nice place to camp. Later we could see that our camping place was a good one, nicely surrounded by grass so no one could see us.
