The weather here is a little cooler but nothing too crazy. Many people certainly are not use to it and are bundled up beyond recognition. If your nose hairs aren’t freezing, you don’t know cold!!! I think today was about 9 degrees!! Although the wind did make it feel cooler.

Eventually I bounced my way to the end of the road. It took a while and was ...
... on the way out. He may have been in a normal gear instead of reverse. Luckily the boat was made of steel and the dock of wood so the dock lost that battle. 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 ...
