I am now in Santiago, Chile after a few days in Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world at about 55 degrees Latitude. I’ve uploaded photos through the 30th — almost caught up — and you can see them below or on my flickr page.

There’s plenty to follow — and many stories to be told. I’m In Patagonia but next week I’ll be able to publish more.

Everything you’ve heard and read about Argentina is true. I’ll leave it at that for now as I’m still sucking it up and knocking on cypress with my continuing good fortune (yes I received my luggage on my second day in Buenos Aires) — scoring the “last room” in hotels I really want to stay at only days before my arrival, seeming scoring the last available non-4×4 in all of Bariloche after arriving to the Hosteria — as you’ll see in the photos, this is a very popular spot for vacationing Argentines. And tomorrow I’m going rafting on the Rio Manso along the Chilean border. Check it out:
More photos tonight. IÂ¨ve become quite accustomed to eating dinner at 11:30 p.m. (it is after all 6: 30 in LA at that time) and find it very difficult/unnecessary to get a whole lot of sleep (except a very important nap before dinner) what with 16 hours of daylight and those hours bound to increase as I continue south. There you go — that’s all without looking at my haphazard notes but as you’d imagine, i’m on the go — off to drive the Ruta de Siete Lagos — 7 lakes road … if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. Or just assume that the answer is Â¨Â¨yes.Â¨
