Tierra del Fuego   Leave a comment

Friday 7th November 2014

Early in the morning we leave Punta Arenas heading for Punta Delgada and Primera Angostura where three ferries run permanently from 8:30 hrs in the morning to 1:00 hrs at night between the mainland and Tierra del Fuego.

With summer arriving in Patagonia, we are reminded that it is Christmas soon…

The last impressions of Punta Arenas

Who has the right of way?

Woohoo – we’re crossing the Strait of Magellan to Tierra del Fuego!

Performing the usual ritual

The weather meets our expectations

Crossing into Argentina – and here, too, the nation grows…

Territorial division of the tip of South America between Chile and Argentina

As you know, we prefer to travel by day and as we’ve heard that the lakes and mountains around Tolhuin and Ushuaia are very beautiful, we decide to stop over in Río Grande and continue our journey in daylight.

Still a sensitive issue – to be discussed with caution here

We are glad to spot a sense of humour as well!

Although, when dinner time comes, we decide to ignore the appeal… 😉
