... a large number of oil and gas wells and a significant amount of industrial development relating to oil and gas. We had originally planned on camping near Rio Grande but could not find an appropriate camp so we pushed on a further 123 kms to Tolhuin.

Punta Arenas lies along the Strait of Magellan in one of the windiest parts of the planet. I remember being in Tarifa, Spain, on the Strait of Gibraltar years ago and watching windsurfers enjoying the blustery conditions where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea, which is where all hurricanes are spawned.
