... that, there is nothing to be seen. Only desert. Every bend in the road, every crest of a hill shows a bigger sky, a flatter country, a further horizon. In Puerto San Julian we witness a demonstration of schoolteachers requesting higher salaries. A teacher with 20 years of experience earns 11.000 pesos (1.100 euro) per month. Seems quite little. Other than us, no spectators. Poor sods. Another demonstration, by truckdrivers burning cartyres is more widespread ...
... seen (the crossing only opened a few years ago). The first part was a very, very steep and very gravelly road up to the top of the hills.

The following day we were to return to El Calafate for a day before leaving Patagonia for the heat of Buenos Aires and a new type of ...
... capped mountain and we can see it clearly from our room. We drove on further and saw Lakes Sarmiento and Nordenskjōld. We stopped at a lookout and walked up to view the surrounding mountains and valley's and noticed a juvenile condor sitting on a rock. We were able to scuttle up another hill closer and take some great photos, then it rustled its feathers and flew off giving us a great display of its wonderful wing span. It circled ...
