A remote place

The most eastern point of my trip in Uruquay was Cabo Polonia, a village surrounded by sand dunes and the rough Atlantic ocean. Until recently the place was not connected to external water and electricity supply. No road leads there, an access by boat is difficult as well. The only chance to get there is by a special type of truck which is capeable to climb the sand dunes or by a powerful 4 wheel drive. In summer the place is apparently quite touristic. Now it was quiet and almost aboundent. Not many people live in Cabo Polonia permanently. Those who do must know all the different shapes of dunes and crippled trees by heart. When I left the village after 2 days a teenage girl was at the 6am truck as well. She seemed to be on her way to school to the next town. She was busy with the smartphone in her manicured hands had fancy clothes and styled hair. The scene made a surreal impression on me as we crossed a dessert in a rumplicg truck.
I imagined how it would have been for me to grow up in such an environment.
Probably a dream for kids, a difficult place for teenagers and a quiet place for adults.
What do you think?
