    ... We quickly stopped the truck and ran out to watch them. There were three orcas that swam into a channel, likely looking for food. We were told that at this time of the year, orcas will come up on the beach and grab the seal pups. The seals were higher on the shore here so we didn't get to see this naturally occurring event. We then continued down the road to another lookout and spotted the orcas we had seen earlier as ...

    ... complaining because if it was the land of actual fire then we probably wouldnt have got to see the colony of King Penguins that live in one of the island's bays. Everybody knows penguins hate fire (PENGUIN FACT #1). The bay is on the West coast near a village (actually just one house) called Onasin. The colony is protected by the Argentinian version of the RSPCA which means the whole colony is gated and visiting is only allowed during specific times. It also means that Argentina ...

    ... another road leading to the coast with a sign pointing to "Punta Tombo." I had seen this way on the map, but it was a bit longer, slightly more circuitous, and equally marked as being unpaved, and assuming the conditions would be equally flooded, we planned to skip it. To our surprise, in reality it had been paved! I still imagined that the pavement would end at some point and we would find ourselves in the same situation, but we HAD to go for it!

    Well the loose plan that we had developed for Argentina was thrown out the window when we truly understood the vast distances to be covered between all the things we wanted to do in just three weeks - Argentina is 3,700 kms from end to end! Sadly John and my plans to visit the famous vineyards of Mendoza got ditched in favour of mountains, glaciers, whales, orca, sea lions and penguins... outvoted 3 to 2!

    And all the 24 hour bus trips that ...
