    We had two full days and two nights in the desert, we had the opportunity to hike and reflect on the gray desert, the red desert where we can admire the Estoraques works of the same nature caused by erosion, we hear the story of the premises on this dry tropical forest, desert misnamed. We also had the opportunity to hear a talk and watch the stars and constellations in the astronomical observatory.
