Back to Argentina
Travel days are always a little unsettling, and this one is no different. After a rather chaotic bus ride to El Calafate, we arrive at our hotel dusty and tired. We added a stop at the famous Perito Moreno Glacier onto our trip, and now we are very happy to have done so because it's providing a buffer between the magic of the Via Australis and EcoCamp and our real life in New York City. Cory and I drop our packs and set off to find a restaurant that was recommended to us by Rafa, and after a very satisfying meal of pizza and beer, we head back for a little R & R. There is a television in the hotel room and the bad made-for-TV movie we find (in English no less!) provides a welcome distraction.
