Nice, silent place, 10 minutes walk from the Calafate main street. Friendly people and warm rooms. It was a bit difficult to find a location, but more fun and possibility to communicate.

Early morning bus to El Calafate was next up with an incredibly long border crossing involving lots of queuing (for us or pushing in for Israelis) and the very confusing money exchange process that is required to make Argentina affordable, Chilean pesos from the ATM changed to ...
... glacier. Food I had been excited about going to Argentina because it is one of the only countries that recognises some people can't eat gluten on this planet. They have a law where food has to be labeled clearly if it is Gf. The symbol is sin T.A.C.C and a picture of a piece of wheat with a cross through it.
