    El Calafate (Argentina) – Torres del Paine (Chile)

    December 20 – December 28 – El Calafate and Torres del Paine On December 20th we were due to fly from Ushuaia to El Calafate in southwestern Patagonia early afternoon. Before we went to the airport, we first worked in an internet cafe, because it was raining a lot again. Once we arrived at the airport, it turned out that we had a four-hour delay. Despite the airport being close to the city, it made little sense to go back, given the weather, and we take the opportunity to do some more work, make reports and pick photos. El Calafate When we finally got to El Calafate it was late,…

    Susques, San Antonio de los Cobros

    November 25-28: Susques, Puna, San Antonio de los Cobros, Cafayate Friday November 25th we leave Yavi on time in the morning because we want to make a long day.

It is therefore not that beautiful and there are relatively…

    El Chalten – Argentina

    December 28 – January 1 – El Chalten After the glacier spectacle, we first do some work the next morning and then leave for El Chalten, a small town in the north of “Parque Nacional Los Glaciares”. On the way we make another stop at Bosque Petrificado ten kilometers west of Parador La Leona on Lago Viedma. This place has its own small dry microclimate and fossilized dinosaur trees and bones can be found. The archaeological site is not further marked, so we have to find it ourselves. We can still find the petrified trees, but we lay people cannot distinguish dinosaur bones between all the stones. Then we drive…

    Mendoza, Villavicencio, Uspallata, Los Penitentes

    Night bus to Mendoza Friday September 30 we took the night bus from Buenos Aires to Mendoza. A journey of more than 1,000 km that you cover in a super luxury bus in approximately 13 hours. As some of us have already heard from us, we were unpleasantly surprised at the Buenos Aires bus station. In a moment of diminished attention, one of our bags was taken. Unfortunately with quite a few valuables, fortunately not with the really important papers, such as tickets, passport or driver’s license. The most annoying thing was that a backup with important data was in the bag, so we had to take some measures to…
