Pousada simples, bem localizada no centro de El Calafate. A simpatia dos donos compensa o desjejum muito pobre. Os colchões dos quartos 9 e 10 precisam ser trocados por outros mais firmes. Eu voltaria, mas só recomendo para turistas pouco exigentes.

... up at the bus station praying that the snow was clear and we could leave Puerto Natales as this closed town had little left to offer us.
Thankfully the bus was going and before we knew it we were enroute, one thing that I have forgotten to mention about being this far south is that sunrise is late, very late. Usually it is pitch dark until around 11am, which is a pretty odd sensation, so we headed across the border in ...
... it would be much faster to use the other crossing. Not thinking to much about it, we walked over to the other street, heading in a different direction to "hacer dedo" (Spanish for hitch hiking). As you must with hitch hiking, a contingency plan is useful when you are putting your fate into others. There was a 2pm bus heading out of town, so we figured if we were unsuccesful by this point we would toss the towel in. 4 hours later, that time came, and as we were strapping our ...

I don't know how he slept through it... but he was always fixing a tent pole, or a hole in his tent, and would have to rebuild it every day! Luckily, we managed to get by by piling rocks around the edge of our tent and redoing the pegs every afternoon. Even so, anything left outside would ...
... back on the bus to head back into town. And predictably I fell sound asleep. At one point I twitched super hard and woke myself up. I was facing the guy across the aisle from me who was chuckling. Apparently he noticed my massive twitch. We got to town and went to the hostel where we ran into the guy from the boat! He was staying at the same hostel as us, but had booked with a different tour company! Random. We laid around a bit then went for dinner. We went to a BBQ place close to ...
... either. Landing into El Calafate, I was very amused by the comments of a US college student sitting behind me: I don't see any buildings, where are we staying? I don't see a runway, where are we landing? The airport is indeed very small and in the middle of nowhere. After a short drive with the bus into the city, a panoramic view of Lago Argentino at sunset was the best welcome into Patagonia. The next day I joined an all day Minitrekking trip ...
