I am surrounded my snow capped mountains which are so close I think I can reach out and touch them. The other view is the Beagle Channel with more of the Fuegan Andes nestling in the background. I love it even if I did have to get up at 3am to get here!
Caroline and I took a boat ride around the Channel and saw cormorants (we call them fake penguins) and sea lions up close which was fantastic.
There was a day playing in the snow as well
The weather here is lovely, chilly but the sun is shining and its gorgeous. It actually snowed for a bit which was beautiful.
Our last day here was spent a little bleary-eyed (actually Caroline only got up at dinner time). We went to the local bar the previous night, with an English chap called Iain for a glass of wine. Later we met up with a chap, Karol, from Slovakia and a local, Ceasar, who we had also met up with at the hostel
Keep getting flashbacks of the bartender giving us extra chocolates...what a nice man.
Anyway a 4.50 am start and 20 hours on a bus to El Calafate next, hurrah. The silly thing is El Calafate is in Argentina, as am I now. However, to get there you have to cross through Chile as there is no Argentina between these two places (weird) which means 4 border crossings and a boat ride with the bus..I cannot wait.
