... too. It was so high - 60 metres, 4km wide and 14km long. It grows 2 metres a say causing ice to regularly crack off. We saw this so many times and ice crashing down into the water - was awesome! We wandered round the platforms then found a good spot to have our lunch and drink our rank grapefruit tasting alcoholic cans we'd bought.

The buzz of the earlier day long gone, it was almost midnight and we trundled along to the hotel in desperate need of a bed and some warmth. Not a great start, my heart really wasn't in it, I was already longing to be back in Chile! The town and my mood were both much brighter the next day!
