    The Blue Grotto and The Cold Stream

    Inside the blue grotto

    Once you come into the grotto, you can finally stand up; there you see the creek which is the result of the thaw; the water is muddy (and so are you at the time!), but the sensation of being underneath a millennium glacier, lit by the amazing blue light of the ice, is unforgettable.

    Una vez que se llega al interior de la gruta, pueden finalmente ponerse de pie; allí verán el arroyo que se forma como consecuencia del deshielo; el agua es fangosa (y a esa altura ustedes también lo están!), pero la sensación de estar debajo de un glaciar milenario, iluminados por la luz azul del hielo, es inolvidable.

    The Blue Grotto

    Going into the cave

    No, I am not wrong; of course, the notorious Blue Grotto is in Capri, but I find a blue grotto at the Perito Moreno Glacier: the water that comes from the thaw undermines the ice, and makes grottos or caves.
    To go into the cave it is not easy (if you have claustrophobia, you cannot even think of it!); you have to creep, and meanwhile the cold water is falling on you, but the experience is absolutely great... The blue light is unbelievable... Is like going into a sapphire!

    No, no estoy equivocada; por supuesto, la célebre Gruta Azul se encuentra en Capri, pero yo encontré una gruta azul en el Glaciar Perito Moreno: las aguas que provienen del deshielo socavan el hielo, y provocan grutas o cavernas.
    Entrar en la gruta no es sencillo (si tienen claustrofobia ni lo piensen siquiera); deben reptar, mientras el agua helada cae sobre ustedes, pero la experiencia es absolutamente maravillosa... La luz azul es increíble... ¡Es como estar dentro de un zafiro!

    Where does the water go?

    A drain in the ice

    During summertime, the glaciers suffer a little thaw; while you are walking over the glaciar, you find several clefts, and some kind of drains, where you hear and see the fall of the water. Where does the water go?

    Durante el verano, los glaciares sufren un pequeño deshielo; a medida que caminas por encima del glaciar, vas viendo varias grietas, y unas especies de sumideros, en donde puedes oír y ver la caída de las aguas. ¿Hacia dónde van las aguas?
