El Calafate
Patagonia - 2013

The shuttle left Eco Camp at 6am. It was still dark and everyone was asleep. To our amazement, we saw a few sets of eyes glowing in the distance. Our driver told us they were pumas. In fact it was, three pumas to be exact, chasing a rabbit. The rabbit took cover under the van we were in. The chase continued into the fields and we were back on the road again. We were driven to a bus stop for the drive to El Calafate. After checking in, we boarded the bus and settled in for a long ride. We had to exit and go through a immigration at the Chile and Argentina boarder. We boarded the bus again and continued to El Calafate. I wish we had more time to spend in El Calafate. Unfortunately, our flight home leaves in the morning. For dinner, we met with a travel companion from Eco Camp to enjoy an authentic open pit barbeque, or Argentinean Asado. Dinner included some wine...of course. Our time in Patagonia is coming to an end. The time I spent here will always be in my heart and soul. My sister and I went to the end of the world together.
