        I had gone back to El Calafate because Ruta 40 between El Chalten and Perito Moreno (town) won't re-open until November. On 22nd, I took the 11.30am bus to Rio Gallegos, arriving there at 4pm. There were four hours to kill before the 16 hour bus journey on to Puerto Madryn. I dragged out one hour over a coffee, empanada and tea in the terminal cafe …

It's a pretty big deal in such a hugely Catholic country. Most cities have a parade where a cross is carried through the street followed by lots of people carrying ...

        We ended up in Gaiman - a Welsh settlement town for the afternoon. Here the two Welshy's of the group relished every moment of having their bit of home.

        ... may still seem like a lot but there's many journeys you can do that go over 50 hours, so ours aren't really long by South American standards. One thing is for sure - when we get back home nothing will seem like a 'long' journey. Even our flight hope from Rio is only 11 hours so that will probably be one of the shortest journeys we've done. Arriving in the port city of Puerto Madryn was a bit of a contrast after experiencing the jaw-dropping ...
