    ... they knew how nice and warm the fireplace was. After our stop we continued into Los Glaciares National Park. We got off the bus at one point and took an hour hike along a lake which gave us some distant views of the glacier. We could also examine the surrounding mountains and see the distinctive tree line both at the lower parts, due to the rising and lowering waters, and upper parts where the temperature cools and trees can't ...

    ... back from the face of the glacier. As the sunshine broke through, we sat, watched, ate, dozed and strolled around the site, observing big chunks of ice crashing into the turquoise lake below. It is a truly incredible natural phenomenon, but after three hours, we felt ourselves fading with tiredness (Nadine can barely walk with her chest), and we shamefully headed for the cafe for a bottle of wine before catching the bus home.

You could just stand there for hours looking at it and listening, hoping for the next chunk of ice to ...

    Tonight we cook pasta, expertly prepared by myself.

    Wednesday 31st December

    Last night we decided we must figure out what we are doing next, so the first thing we do in the morning is we go to the bus station to find out if there are any buses going to El Chalten on the first. It is kind of a catch 22 situation. If we buy the bus ticket first, we won’t ...

    ... to the face.

    And that wasn't particularly close because what seemed like little pieces of ice falling down were actually the size of cars. When they hit the water they can split and throw 'smaller' pieces hundreds of metres away from the glacier. Thirty eight foolhardy people, who went closer to the glacier than allowed, have actually paid with their life when hit by these 'smaller' pieces. We were lucky enough to see a couple of ...
