We have arrived in Patagonia on the Chilean side. We are in a sleepy port town called Punta Arenas. We are getting ready for some treking in the ¨Tierra de Fuego¨ (land of fire). We will soon take the bus south about as far as you can go at the end of the earth by road, Ushuaia in Argentina. We will take our time and enjoy the scenery as much as we can because right now we know that we cannot enter national park Torres del Paine.
Hope you all had a great New Years party and are enjoying the sun and heat if your in the southern hemishere. If your not rug up tight... we are feeling what you feel right now. About a refreshing 5 degrees.
Ciao for now, Afra and Scott
