... it was already 12pm when they left, and this stretch - with its westerly turns - was famous for horrific headwinds. After 40 kilometres of tailwind, they caught up with Bernardo, a very bubbly Spanish hairdresser who was good company, but who was desperate - through his laddish banter and constant sexual innuendo - to prove to us he wasn't gay. When we turned into a horrific headwind on the Ruta 40, John suggested five minutes each riding on the front - this was long enough to make ...

We arrived in El Calafate at 2:30pm and after grabbing a map from tourist information in the bus station, we walked the 50m to Hospedaje Flores del Sur. It has to be our easiest walk from transport to accommodation on the entire trip.
