... nomads, feeding off the land rather than the sea. In the late 19th century, the British brought sheep farms to the area creating disputes between them and the natives. Once gold was discovered by the conquerers, so the Selknam genocide began. The last Selknam Angela died in 1974. So, back to the penguins!

    ... before we were told that the flights were canceled again, still due to fog, so back to the hotel, again with the room keys. This time we left our luggage on the buses and just did our best to catch a few hours of sleep before breakfast.
