It was selfie stick city on the boat as we passed the glacier. I near lost an eye to an over enthusiastic Japanese tourist. Once on shore we were divided into Spanish and English speaking tour guides. My guide was named Diego. That is my second guide named Diego in the last week. He was pretty funny. They ...
