... those of you that know Maxi, you know what a character he is. He's always kidding and having a good time and I can't believe I let 17ish years pass before we visited again. Highlights of the visit included a renewed passion for drinking herba mate which is like an argentine hot tea drank from traditional carved wooden cup and thru a metal spoon-straw type thing. Check out the photos. Luli blew my mind though when she served it cold pool-side with a sweet lemon ...
... we headed of to the Los Glaciares National Park about 80km North of El Calafete, where we would get to see the Perito Moreno Glacier up close. The Glacier is 30km long, 5km wide and in places over 70m in height. Our first sight of it was of just one half of it from a few kilometres away and it was incredible to think how big the whole thing would be. The bus then took us to the main entrance to the park where there were different wooden walkways we could take to see the glacier ...

These events are not very common - small break-offs are common (small being 'car-sized') but these ones were full 70+m break-offs of ...
There are 3 separate options for your time at Estation Christina. #1 you enjoy the boat ride, followed by a nice lunch and historical tour of the estation. #2 same as above except you add in a overland truck ride to a view point of another glacier. #3 the option we chose, boat ride, overland truck up to viewpoint, then walk back 14 km through a fossil canyon back to the Estation. This sounded like an awesome hike and it did not disappoint. ...
