Breakfast at 6:30AM, and disembarkation at 7:30AM. Crazy bus ride again through the custom. Left the baggage at the store room and headed for a walk with Ann, her mother, Michael and others. Only one place open at so early hour; we didn’t want to blend with other ship’s passengers, but later returned to the same café for hot chocolate. Met Chrisy and Allan, and Steve for lunch, went back to Tango B&B, tried to take a nap, and back to town for a dinner, at La Cantina Fueguina at San Martin, took a walk down the shore, at the longest day of the year for this hemisphere!
