There is incredible beauty being at Punta Boca del Salado.
See for example how the office looks at sunset.
This beauty is not saturating for 100 % though.
There are certain things happening at Punta Boca del Salado that are experienced as not very beautiful at all.
One example is a horse that was tied up near the rancho for months now.
It had been roaming freely for two years.
Having a wild life in the mountains until it was caught coming down to drink from the water well of the rancho.
In a former posting it was reported how an effort was made to try to become friends with this horse.
Because it inspired sentimental feelings.
Having lost its freedom and unable to understand why it was tied up.
During months this horse was offered fresh water and hay.
To see if some kind of friendship could develop.
Yesterday an end came to the ordeal of the horse.
The ordeal of being tied up in the bright sun all day.
The ordeal of days without water or food.
The ordeal of being without freedom.
For 1.500 Pesos (95 Euros, 139 $) the horse was sold.
Yesterday the new owners came to pick it up.
Once in the trailer and ready for transportation, there were tears in the eyes of the horse.
