Back to Argentina

Sheering a sheep in Calafate
Sheering a sheep in Calafate
This morning we woke too early to say to drive from EcoCamp to Puerto Natales to catch a bus to El Calafate. Even with a quick stop to change a flat tire, we made it in time for our early morning bus. We had to go through a quick customs check at the border, and made it to El Calafate by early afternoon. From the bus station we transfered to our hotel for the next couple nights, El Galpon del Glacier (formerly Estancia Alice). In the afternoon Frankie and I explored around the old sheep farm, walked with our guide, and had the opportunity to see the sheep farming presentations. Growing up in rural Montana, Frankie and I were both familiar with farm life, but it was quite interesting to see how it was all done in the southern hemisphere. Dinner that night was filled with tons of food, and all kinds of meat. It was a traditional Argentine barbeque! They also had a tango dance presentation for us to enjoy. The whole thing was a little more touristy than I am used to, but hey, I am a tourist!
