  • so yeah it's O about 1500 meters here were up in the mountains in the valley

  • of kalamu cheetah yes this is the town where I went to school as a child yeah

  • different lookout points and get beautiful views of the whole area and

  • number two food there's a lot of like German Swiss inspired cow and that's

  • really popular in this area and it seems to be what most restaurants specialize

  • in yeah so after a bit of hiking we're gonna go get some food honestly today is

  • a bit of a late start to the day we had breakfast at 10:00 so we need some

  • exercise or exercise before we work up lunch

  • so we are now arriving at the lookout point

  • it's called mirador de cristo chico or lookout little Christ eighty meters off

  • about this town is that it's pedestrian only so you may see a few cars in town

  • but only people who live here are allowed to actually drive them in if

  • you're visiting you have to leave your car out in this massive parking lot at

  • the entrance of town and then they bring you in by bus or you can walk down the

  • hill it's a very short walk well yeah that gives this place a very peaceful

  • tranquil feel like you can just roam down the dirt roads and walk around for

  • hours really and there are hardly any vehicles so yeah a beautiful place for

  • hiking enjoying nature we're just surrounded by trees and forests and

  • flowers people really take care of their gardens here so you have so many

  • different flowers in bloom and everything is just perfectly manicured
