... I went back to get another card to just in case that was the problem but found everything closed. They like to close down in the middle of the day and open back up again at 2. I waited around and finally found an ATM that had $. I decided to hire a bike for the rest of the day and ride out to Punta Fletcher (about 18 km).

55. Puerto Madryn - a whale of a time

A travel blog entry by kesvic2013 on Apr 22, 2014

... their name is because when they were hunted, they were the 'right' whales to hunt as they have lots of fat). But, we had decided to go because for around 3 months of the year orcas (killer whales) are present and sometimes visible from a national park on nearby Peninsula Valdes. I think we were really lucky on the day we went because we saw many more animals than we expected. The whole area is very flat and dry ...

Siamo circondati. Sembra di stare in uno zoo, solo che l'attrazione siamo noi. D'altronde non capita molto spesso di andare in un posto per vedere qualche animale selvatico e di essere in netta minoranza. Ci sono diversi turisti, ma il numero di esseri umani si aggira su qualche dozzina, mentre i pinguini li puoi contare a migliaia; non per niente Punta Tombo è la più grande colonia di pinguini del mondo, escluso l'Antartide.
