... amazingly was the home of pink flamingos. Now we are in the very south of Argentina, it's colder than home right now and there are snow capped mountains across the lake, so to see the flamingos here and not in a tropical climate as you would expect, was quite something.
That evening after dinner we visited the many outdoors/adventure stores in town to find some (cheap) gloves and snoods for the next day. It's pretty cold here, ...

We also trekked for 5 hours through the valley near a glacier for incredible views (yep... me trekking? I know! And yes I did check if there was a horse-riding option first!)

We had a look at some of the tours to the main glacier Perito Moreno offered by the numerous agencies but after some investigations found a bus we could get that was a lot cheaper so we booked it up to end our stay on. It was New Year's eve and we weren't sure what to expect from the town, we got some bubbles in to start the evening and people watched in the street. ...
