Kindness Was All Around In Puerto Natales And Torres del Paine, Chile

I woke up early to catch the bus from Ushuaia, Argentina to Punta Arenas, Chile. Then I got on the bus and then crossed the border as usual. (I like the words 'as usual'.

A Peaceful And Tranquil Day in El Calafate

The Spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier

The Hot But Beautiful Bariloche And Patagonia

Arrived at Bariloche from Buenos Aires this afternoon. The bus was late. It was so hot here. The hostel staff drove me to the hostel. It turned out their hostel was overbooked.
