Where I stayed
I am staying in a realy nice hostel,of corse it is from the che lagarto chain wich I fell in love with allready in brazil, I think that from my second day of the trip I ve been with this hostel evrywhere I stayed
first in rio,then in paraty,then again in rio,then in buenos,at ushai there was no che lagarto and it was a realy bad experince for me,less conditions,shared bathroom no english speaking staff bed with lise!
well I can strongly say its a realy important thing to me were I sleep!
ok back to telling you a bit about El calafete:
the main thing to do here is going to the glaciares!wich is the largest one in all argentina
perito moreno is the local name
the pictures could only give you a liitle tast of the huge glaciar!
it is amazing and enormess!!!and so powerfull to see it exploading!
I went on a day trip wich had three main parts the first was to treck beside it just going around the big thing!
the second part was a boat ride where you could go right by it .the third part was the best one! walking on it!!!
they guys put on these special shoes and then we climb it !it was amasing and so cool!
the pictures I put up could give you a small taste!
most israelis go only to the first part cause it is very expencive!500peso for the day!
but I think it was worth it!
and I recomend it!
