Carratera Austral 5-9/2/21014 - Summary:
We went 4 Israelis, nobody knew the others much before. We had only 5 days, instead of 6, including the trip Chalten-Antiguas.

There is only so much looking at a glacier one can do and we randomly met a guy from Florida outside the cafe. He had been traveling around for a couple of months and living on the cheap, hitch-hiking across Patagonia. He was going to try to stealth camp near ...

El Calafate Day #1 -- 100% Misery & Agony

... that was some bizarre anomaly. Damn, I wish I had asked the hotel lady about this earlier! I didn’t realize there was a thriving black market for U.S. dollars.

Went up to my room to grab $160 to change to pesos. Just when I thought my pesos problems were finally over, my despair would only worsen. A second woman working at the front desk examined the eight $20 bills I handed over and gave seven of them back to me. “Sorry,” she said. ...
