Torres del Paine

Excuse the radio silence around here lately. I've had to move to another town for work. In the meanwhile, I still need to finish up my posts from Patagonia last October!

The W Trek in the Torres del Paine was amazing; well, apart from the one little fact that we got struck down by food poisoning so badly that we couldn't do the last part. But what we did get to see was possibly some of the best natural scenery I've ever experienced in my life.

Perito Moreno

Perito Moreno is a glacier in Los Glaciares national park, in Patagonia. It's the only stable glacier in the world - all the other ones are receding. Apparently it covers an area larger than the city of Buenos Aires!

El Chalten

El Chalten was our first stop in Patagonia. It's on the Argentinian side, and the base for hiking to Mount Fitz Roy. It was one of the best things I've ever done!

Buenos Aires, again

We were in Buenos Aires for a few days before and after Patagonia. I'd visited before, so I wasn't too stressed about rushing around to see things. It's a big city, with lots of districts; it's also got very European vibes, which has earned it the nickname the Paris of South America. To be honest, just like last time, I had difficulty really connecting with the city and I'm not sure why.
