    ... door of my hostel and was only $Arg70 (again more expensive than stated in the Lonely Planet guide book so I'd advise people not to rely too much on the costs set out in the book and to do their own homework). The rest of the day I spent investigating the town a pizza in La Lechuza & a glass of wine in The Libro Bar followed by some grocery shopping and dinner in Da Pino just up from the hostel. I have to say that my experience with the Hostel here America Del Sur (my ...

    ... of which were such bright reds and oranges that the contrast was beautiful. We also got to see some woodpeckers in working which was really sweet. They make such a squeaking noise you can help but laugh.

    ... some more woodpeckers and came very close to a rare native deer - a huemul (way-mul) - which inhabits the forests. Sadly no pumas or minks! Feeling at one with nature, we had a final night in El Calafate and then a carbon-footprint-balancing 3 hour flight up to Buenos Aires to avoid several days on a bus looking at the apparently not so amazing mid-Argentinian countryside. Buenos Aires will be brief as we're going to head to the Iguazu Falls as soon as ...

    ... almost non-stop. Then occasionally one of the chunks of ice would break off and fall into the water. What a crashing sound it would make. The wave it made was also impressive. It was really windy and quite cool today (upper 50's F). We even had a few drops of rain.

    We stopped at the Glaciarium, a glacier museum, on our way home and read all about how and why glaciers form. It was interesting to a point, but you all know Eldon and ...
