Argentina, We Just Can't Stay Away

A travel blog entry by mhwalktheearth on Nov 16, 2013

We had our first potential hiccup in our travels. Someone got overzealous throwing out papers and mistakenly threw out his (hint, hint) tourist card for Chile. Nothing on the card or in what we had read said the card needed to be kept. It had the same stamps as in our passport and mostly the same information. While in the immigrations line to leave …

... The beauty of this set up and a relief to us all is that there is plenty of space to just be by yourself and stop and stare.The most incredible view is had at the top tier where you can see the top of the glacier from the walls all the way back to the mountain top.It is here that the sheer enormity of this primeval beast comes into your eyes with picture shock hard to describe.It is a solid white river of jagged ice peaks which is suspended in motion like a still shot of a ...

... open, rather than on siesta all afternoon; that's kinda Vegas-like. Oh yea, and cell service has made it to this town; maybe that's what he was talking about. Further, the campground we chose to stay in that first night happens to sit on the property of an all-you can-eat barbecue joint, with side salads to accompany the full lamb, arms and legs spread wide open above a fire, dripping fat into the pit for our vegetarian family's evening entertainment. Perhaps this ...

... easy to access and you can ask any local where the nearest exchange is to get a rate that at worst is 15% better than the official rate. You can even follow the rates in the local newspapers or on Twitter! The expense of our previous trekking had bruised the bank account but a fellow traveller had mentioned a placed called El Chalten - 3 hours bus ride from El Calafate - which was free besides hiring your camping gear and offered quieter, less ...

Day 18-20 - El Calafate, Argentina

... yell and duck as well...pretty funny experience really. Our accommodation was at Hostal Patagonia and it is clean, has a laundry service, free wifi and is in a good location, only 5 minutes walk to the main street. Tonight I said goodbye to Patagonia and headed to Buenos Aires. Patagonia is a beautiful place and I would love to come back one day. It will be nice to wear shorts again though! It is summer here and still probably only 15 degrees with a serious wind ...

    Definitely our favorite place we had stayed after a month in South America. Online reviews complained about its location. We didn't think the walk was bad. The place's charm and Adriana's hospitality easily outweigh any concerns about the location anyways. Super comfortable room and legitimately hot shower at all times. Adriana's homemade treats were the star of the show though. I highly recommend staying here.
