The next day after assessing our options we decided to rent a taxi for the day in order to go and see the Perito Moreno glacier.The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of only three Patagonian glaciers that are not retreating. The Perito Moreno Glacier is 5 kilometres wide, with an
average height of 74 m above the surface of the water of Lake Argentino. It has a total ice depth of 170 metres, so with our taxi and Bock lunch we set off to see some ice.
We returned back to the hostel for a siesta before heading out in town for Briansy´s birthday bash. After drinking a bit in the hostel we took a stroll into town. The Israellis in our room must have thought they were back at home when Steve decided to lob a glass onto the roof of our hostel/barn and it smashed to pieces on the galvanised steel. When walking through the town we bumped into a couple we had met in Bolivia (Dan and Helen) so we joined them for a few more drinks. In our first pub a birthday cake was organised and Brian got happy birthday sung to him in Spanish. On our next bar Dan decided it was obligitary for Brian to have a shot of Tequila on his birthday. This would be Brians last drink of the night as the inflatable cushion was calling him.
Pa and Steve still had a bit of life left in them after the club so when a few locals offered them a tour of the area....adventure beckoned
P.S. There a lot more pictures from here but ´Technology Pa´ is up to his old tricks again, his camera his giving him a bit of trouble so he couldn´t get the photo´s up. Brian does not mind that one bit for this entry though...
