While trudging 220km of the Camino de Santiago last week, I walked between the rain worn adobe houses between Burgos and Leon. Build from mud bricks, adobe houses generally last for about 75 to 100 years, and are usually in a state of roundedness.
It crossed my mind that brown house-shaped soaps,
gradually wearing down like the houses themselves, would be a nice reminder of the trip.
Also, after trudging 220km across Spain, soap is lovely.
Gardener's Clay Soap
It isn't Spanish, it isn't house-shaped, and it isn't exactly adobe, but clay soap can also be very nice and comes close to filling the bill. [jurist, Apr 04 2006]
It's a castle made of soap...and some other things

||+ I love this idea, as we tend to bring home 'reminders' of our trips that aren't as useful as this...and in such an artsy way.
||Consumables make for great momentos of a trip. Everything else requires storage space and dusting. Pastry.
||The soap should have pumice and straw in it, so you can have that textural rememberence as well.
||Or maybe you could build an adobe out of mud-brick-shaped soap...?
||Ahhhh. Awww. Nice. Could come in cactus, desert flower, even tequila scented versions.
