   Trelew,

It took  a long time to get here!!!!!

I got the bus from Ushuaia at 5.30am, changed at Rio Grande, got on a boat with the bus and saw amazing dolphins swiming along the side of the boat - small and very white, not to mention very fast!!, then bus to Rio Gallegos, change to Comorodo Rivaderia.

I arived in Comorodo Rivaderia and left the French couple, and the Scottish couple ive kind of been traveling with and met a guy from Holland called Walter. We are going up to Trelew together to see the Penguins!

It took 5 1/2 hours to Trelew from Comorodo Rivaderia and we eventually arived at 12 - noon. We were on a tour by 2pm to see the penguins at a whoping $50 but it was great. Car hire wold have been cheaper but it is Sunday and everything is closed - and i mean EVERYTHING!!!

It was the largest penguin colony Outside Antartica, some 600,000 penguins all waddling around, I took loads of pics and vids and they were great to watch. They were just out of mating season and to start with for up to a year they cannot swim due to loads of feathers on them which they systamatically pluck off. Once they have rid of the excess feathers they are ready to go and they start their own catch of shrimp and sardines amongst other things. It took 2h to get here from Trelew and it was hard after my previous mamouth bus journey. We saw the penguins for 2 hours, got back on a bus to Trelew, picked up our bags which I left at a hostel somewhere and then I got on a bus at 9pm for Buenos Aires - another 24 hours of busses! You know if it arives on time out of the past 60 hours I will have been on a bus of some kind for 55 of them!
