Where there is love, one buys . And when there is heartbreak or suffering, too . We are a distant link from Shakespeare's family who still finds poetry in Romeo and Juliet. Although we can add to the Hollywood culture if we don't intend to go that far. In this sense, the Correntino town of Mercedes can make a film production on a stone and what it generates in couples . It is Itá Pucú , a natural monument located 40 kilometers from the village and over a stream that has the same name. However, its beauty and contexture are not the main motifs that attract visitors. On the contrary, it is an ancient story that encompasses two young people .
It all starts with a girl named Mirí , who was madly in love with Itá . It is said that every sunset, after finishing his tasks (very responsible), the latter was headed to the canaveral near the lake. I was doing it because Miri's hut was installed there. She, on her side, was always firm waiting for him . Many times he did it sadly because of a pain that was silent. But he was never interested in knowing the reasons.
Until one day came when the boy disappeared abruptly without giving any explanation. In the meantime, she kept waiting for him... this time in vain . However, he believed that something serious could have happened to him and went on his search . In this way, he went to this house, to the tribe that inhabited, and even to other regions. Zero answers. Desperately he came back and, when he thought he would never see him again, he finally found him . Itá was in the same place all the time, but now she was doing it with another woman .
Miri came up and called him, but he received no reply . Then, the young woman put a hand on her shoulder and he gave her a look so cold that it devastated her . At that moment, the girl said her name aloud and this became a cold and hard stone . It's said it was Miri's miracle. Of his tenderness and his suffering. From there, Itá stood firm and high in the place. And the word Pucú is added to it, which in Guarani means upright, hard or cold. Today it is seen surrounded by lower rocks reminiscent of the girl's heart .
Many lovers reach the place and leave a pebble on top of the monument . They do it as a form of love and mutual dedication . Likewise, the ritua involves a request for eternal happiness . In fact, a few years ago a couple married Itá Pucú and the news went viral. It was the first marriage made in the natural place. Surely many more will want to continue with the idea. We all need to hold on to something to believe in and today's lovers are no exception. Anyway, the important thing to mention here is that, apparently, the phenomenon of ghosting comes from centuries ago.
