I was half tempted to wash my socks and leave them on the floor to dry. Regardless, the heat seemed to just seep through my bed, making it very difficult to sleep. I even got up to complain. Twice.

... with the satellite, so instead we dine to a recording of Tina Turner and Shania Twain and other slightly outdated women powerhouse voices signing for some benefit. We can't help but sing along sometimes too. Day 10 - Our last few hours in El Calafate are raining, and we do just what the guidebooks tells us to do on a rainy day: we go to the Glaciarium. The Glaciarium is a museum dedicated solely to glaciers, complete with films of an ice bridge collapse that happened ...
