These are fascinating pics Luc. I had to find out what this was all about. Googling for information, the alternative name seems to be the dripping well. Apparently those little teddy bears will be turned to stone in only 3 - 5 months due to the water flowing over them having a high mineral content. All sorts of petrified objects can be viewed in the Museum there. I would like to see this place. Thanks for stirring my curiosity.
