Got up at 7 and had a good breakfast at La Estancia. Caught to 9am bus for Puerto Natales, and had little trouble finding our hostel here. Yagenhouse, our hostel here, is just amazing. Eco friendly decors and tangy Spanish music brought the place to life. We did some grocery shopping, and proceeded to Erratic Rock for the '3 o clock briefing' (which became 4 cause its a public holiday). Jimmy, the staff, gave an amazing sharing on the hike. We proceeded to rent tents and sleeping pads after that.

Walked down to the bus station to grab onward tickets to El Calafate for 27 May, after we return (12000 pesos). Return tickets for Torres del Paine was expensive though, at 25000 pp.

Made dinner with tuna and pasta, and spent much time packing. Wifi had been down the whole day but glad it's fixed now.

Will be heading to Torres Del Paine for a 5d4n hike on the W circuit. Looking forward!
