Travelling in Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, Part 7
In the afternoon, we took a cruise to the Beagle Channel. Very cold, but great scenery and animals (sea lions). On a small island, we could take a walk, see very strange plants and sit in ancient gathering place of the native inhabitants (the Yamana). Most of them are dead by now. They could not adapt to the "white" lifestyle. In the evening, we went to a wonderful restaurant, where I had one of the best meals in my life: lamb with ginger-lentils and a divine chocolate cake for dessert.
The next day (11/20), we took a bus to the National Park and did a memorable walking/ canoeing tour. The weather was very unpredictable. The sun shone one minute, and the next it was hailing. Canoeing was very hard and without my Australian mate I could not have done it. The current was very powerful and the wind was blowing away. We celebrated the end of the tour at the Irish Pub (yes, you heard right) in Ushuaia and some of us (not me) could not even get up the next morning. Didn't really matter, because our flight to Buenos Aires was not until the evening.
Those of us who could went to the Glacier Martial (with a chairlift) and we just walked around a bit, saying good-bye to this beautiful and amazing stretch of land. Technically, my journey ended this day and on November 22nd I was going to fly out of Buenos Aires to Wisconsin (for Thanksgiving) and then back home, but there was one big hurdle to overcome before I would be sitting in my plane leaving Argentina...
