... to Ushuaia on 13th January 2006.
As we hadn't managed to do the tour of Kensington Oval when we arrived here, we decided to make that our first stop after breakfast. We had to be out of our cabin by 8.00am anyway, so we left our bags in the Arena theatre for safekeeping, then took a walk to the famous cricket ground which opened for tours at 9.00am.
