Hola, still having a great time apart from waking up at like 3 o´clock with icicles hanging off my chin and not being able to feel any of my limbs, i´m freezing my ass off, think the small sleeping bag was prob bad idea now. Anyway enough complaining, i´m at the end of the world, literally the end, and i flew off the end of the world yesterday in a little plane, but survived to tell the tale. Its really nice down here, theres loads of mountains everywhere and it snowed last nite so they´re all white now so its really beautiful. Went to the national park yday and did a massive trek, well it felt massive cos all i´ve been doing is eating steak and drinking wine for the last 2weeks and then sitting on the truck for ten hours a day, yeh i know its a hard life but someone´s gota do it i guess. When people tell you stories about the steaks in argentina i was a bit dubious to how accurate these stories are, but they´re all true, i can honestly say without lying or exaggerating that argentinian steaks are miles and miles and miles better than any i´ve had anywhere else. Patagonia is pretty much like i imagined, miles and miles and miles and miles of nothingness. Occasionally there´s some cattle and the occasional herd of guanaco (kind of like a llama) but apart from that its just red, brown, grey and sometimes green as far as the eye can see, not the sort of place u want to run out of petrol or get lost. Didnt get to see any whales at valdes, but did get to see a sea lion colony and some penguins which was good, cos it wasnt in a zoo, we actually got to see them in their natural environment, funny looking animals, oh and armadillos too, one went hoking in my bag, reckon he was prob looking for dime bars but couldnt find any. Gona try and whack a few more photos on, dont have any recent ones from here but hopefully within next week or 2 i´ll be able to get some more recent ones put on. Hope everyone is well, peace
