... down the face of the glacier, making a massive splash and shotgun blast sound as it hit the water, we were then aware these were not pebbles but basketball sized ice chunks. We had nearly 5 hours before our bus left, so we wandered the many boardwalks on the hill facing the glacier.
We strolled to a lower platform where we decided it was time for a specialty of Argentina, some delicious Malbec. We had bought a small bottle of vino and a couple cups. We ...
