Wandering around in a Robe

Men and women dressed in white walk up and down its streets. They are not physicians but visitors to the hot springs.

Everything lies close in the modern City of Federación and seeing people walking here and there is a natural thing both during the day and in the evenings. In addition to this, its temperate climate allows everyone to wear comfortable clothes.

The shore of Lake Salto Grande is an attraction itself which invites everyone to enjoy outdoor activities. That is why people are wearing shorts, swimsuits and sandals.

No sooner is Federación reached than visitors find themselves in front of a curious fact: attendants to the hot springs move up and down public places without any prejudice boasting their towels on one shoulder. They leave their hotels wearing robes just as if they were at home. The point is that some hotels provide these items as part of their service. On the other hand, they can also be rented at the hot spring resort.

It only takes a few hours to get used to this fact that is completely normal in a city that has transformed the hot springs into a lifestyle.

Most hotels, aparts and bungalows lie very close to the hot spring resort. Therefore, everything lies within walking distance.

It all changes inside the facilities. The various pools, whether outdoor or screened, and the water sport activities available imply the need to be as comfortably dressed as possible. Then, bathing suits become the uniform everybody wears. Just excessive sunbathing or some wind gust cause guests to put on their robes again.

It is not unusual to see someone going to get the paper wearing the typical clothes they wear at home when they get up. This is almost a habit at Federación.
