We have not been able to persuade Dick to stay. He must go back to his patients. We have to put him on the plane in Buenos Aires on monday 6th of April. That gives us six days to get there, about 3.200 km from Ushuaia. We want to treat him to a hot night in the city to make him feel really sorry he is leaving us. So we need to drive over 600 km each day for the coming five days. The first day we only do 250 or so. Les's car has its first tyre problem. A sharp piece ...

We were met at the hotel at 9.30 by the driver from the Las Torres Hotel and another English speaking girl. We were given a bag with some water, fruit and nut mix and a book on the Las Torres Hotel. We headed out of Punta Arenas, it is a lovely town, exceptionally clean, and orderly with traffic lights at all the intersections. We have to travel about 350 kms to the hotel, approximately a 5 hour trip because we stop for lunch for 1-1.30hrs. ...
