Day 2 of skiing and we've come to some realisations: the sun rising at 9.30 is still surreal, they are big on their dulce de leche here, and the argentinians love to snowboard. We've never seen this many boarders on the alps, I guess things really are the other way around here. Nonetheless the atmosphere here is very European, with the bars on the slopes serving continental breakfasts and pizza, pasta, vegetable soups!
The morning ski conditions were difficult, it was snowing like crazy, the visibility was very poor ( #4 on the Nomes visibility scale to be precise) and it was freezing. Nonetheless we did keep ourselves entertained through the frost bite with more chairlift Nomes-isms such as " if I had to choose a limb to lose, I would give away my left toe" and "if you'd eat everything Pano, would you even eat a shoe?!". Lol seriously noman Athwal, where do u get these thoughts come from?
The afternoon brightened up dramatically and with the heavens opening up and the horizon now visible we got to see the 'fin del mundo' in all it's glory. The landscape is striking, smooth valleys and then jagged cliffs all the way into the distance towards the south pole. How on earth did people ever get down here?
In the evening we decided to make use of our kitchen and prepare a home cooked meal of pesto pasta and cheese- a year from graduating but forever students :). The guys went to the supermarket to stock up on ingredients whilst jess. Our mother hen rested at home. Suraj is quite the chef!
