As my mom and I were going to visit the Cave of the Crystals, we got stuck in a really long line that seemed endless. Then, there was a great commotion and suddenly, people were pouring into the cave. It was finally open! As we walked in, construction workers were working on pumping water out of the cave. Then, I saw something I have never seen before, Giant crystals. I went to take a closer look at the sparkling giants before me. I put my hand on one and it was steaming hot. I moved my hand along the crystal and its smoothness would make it pleasant to touch if it wasn’t so hot.
I quickly pulled my hand when she told me to catch up since she was already halfway through the cave. The workers told us to put on the special suits that they were giving us. One of them said that if we don’t, we will have to go out of the cave because of the high temperature. I quickly drank some of the cold water in my water bottle before I put my suit on. After we put on our suits, we went deeper into the cave. I heard lots of people saying ooh and wow and lots of people were taking pictures. Then, I saw on of the largest natural crystals in the world.
We rushed to take a picture of it. My mom asked a tourist if he could take a picture of us and the crystal. He agreed and took three pictures of us just in case some of them were not good. After that, we continued to explore this natural paradise. At the end of the cave, there was an odor that smelled of sweaty people. I looked carefully and saw a lot of scientists examining the giant crystals.
I asked my mom if we could go over there and take a look and she said yes. I walked over really excited, knowing that this was the first time I have ever talked to a scientist. I asked him what he was doing and he said he was finding out what the crystals were made of. Then, he pointed at the people that were pumping water out of the cave.
“That water is what the crystals are made of” he said.
He reached into his pocket and took out a glass bottle and gave it to me. He said that the water inside was some of the water the workers were pumping out.
“Consider it a gift” he said.
Time flied and soon, we had to go out of the cave. It was such an amazing experience that I didn’t want to leave because I still had questions to ask the scientists. If I could, I would want to come back to this cave again.
