... the table next to us got looked pretty delicious. The restaurant also had a complimentary shuttle home so that was awesome. Friday we got up early for our tour out to the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. It's the only glacier in the world that is currently stable and not retreating. It stands 40-60m tall and has an additional 100m under the water. It's 3.5km wide where it meets the lake and is 30km long. It was incredible!!! Our guide gave us lots of interesting facts, including that ...

... walk, but the rain stops after a while. We see horses, flamingos and some other birds. Loads of local semi wild dogs. There is usually about five of them just lying in front of the police station and one Alsatian stays in front of our hostel. Most are quite friendly, but they don’t bother you at all. If they like you they will follow you a little, so you can have a dog that is temporarily yours, until it sees another tourist that catches its eye. Once we saw two ...

Day 2 El Calafate Today was purposely a slow day. We did explore Laguna Nimez which is full of bird life including pink flamingo. Just an easy walk from our hotel. The rest of the day was spent exploring el centro.

Day 3. Both the SigSearles and the Williams had an early start. The SigSearles were on a mission to go kayaking near a glacier; the Williams, not quite as adventurous took a bus to ...
