Chile

The surroundings of Ushuaia were very pretty, but still plenty of snow and ice around so we could not drive into the NP. We only spent one night there, very cold with only 1 degre in the car. The local king crab was very tempting for lunch before heading back north, and very delicious , just special to celebrate the arrival in the most southern town, from Alaska last year to Ushuaia! The Beagle bay was very pretty with the sun out on Sunday. As it is out of the tourist season there was nowhere to stay in the car except the fuel station...So we headed north, back to the border with Chile and to Punta Arenas, the most southern town in Chile. A pleasant place to visit with some beautiful older buildings. We visited the museum which had some interesting displays. From there, we drove on to Puerto Natales, the start of the Torres del Paine National parc, famous for its 3 pink granite towers. Some beautiful sceneries along the way and we camped two nights, did some nice walks, despite the very strong cold wind and now we are back into Argentina.In this part of the world, we need to zigzag between the two countries but border crossings are simple enough. The next place will be El Calafate and the Moreno glacier.
