In Ushuaia. The southernmost city in the world. The end of the Americas. Ushuaia is on the Beagle Channel. Yesterday, took a boat tour on the channel and saw more Magellenic penguins, and a couple of others too. King penguins and some sort of Antarctic variety not often seen here. Saw cranky, sleepy sea lions and rock cormorants (both in photo) too. On the way back to the city, we passed a cruise ship on its way to Antarctica. For a couple thou and unlimited time, you can catch a last minute deal to the bottom of the world. (Unfortunately, I have neither.)
Today did some great hiking in the Tierra del Fuego National Park. Really nice. Big beach glass day. My jeans pockets are sagging here in the cyber cafe. (Not to mention that it´s good to be heading to warmer places soon, since my jeans are about ready to stand up on their own.) The park is a bird watchers paradise. And there are bunnies by the hundreds (or maybe thousands)--black, cottontail, brown. They´re all here in force hopping ´round. It was so wonderful, we may go back tomorrow to do more hiking.
Unfortunately, the zippy l´il camera broke. We´ll look at a cheap digital in Duty Free in Buenos Aires in a couple of days on our way to Montevideo (Uruguay).
