Leaving Chile

Two days at Torres del Paine National Park in a rented Nissan 4 x 4, avoiding cows being herded down the road. Snow-capped peaks. Pink flamingos in an icy lake. Guanacos (see photo) grazing along the road. Blue icebergs. Andean condors. Waterfalls.

It´s cold so in a fit of ingenuity, I knit myself a headband ear muff and sewed it together using a tweezers since I didn´t have a needle.

Tomorrow we cross from southern Chile to southern Argentina.

You sewed using tweezers and no needle?! Are you related to Macgyver?

Gorgeous picture. I want to bury my head in their furry coats.
