Goodbye Ushuaia!
Exquisite Antarctica 2011

We disembark the ship after breakfast this morning with memories and photos that will be cherished. My wildlife highlights were seeing Light Mantled Sooty Albatross, Orca Whales, Arnoux Beaked Whales and Macaroni Penguins. The beaked whale was extremely rare. One of the biologists remarked that the species had probably never been photographed in the wild before. My flight departs Ushuaia in the afternoon and before I know it, I'm back in Buenos Aires. I head over to the Adventure Life office in the city and meet up with a few friends. They take me downtown to a traditional grill and we pass a few hours chatting. Afterwards, I wander the streets of Buenos Aires, buying gifts for friends and exploring the city. I'm not one for large cities, so I return to the hotel rather early and turn in for the night.
