We got up early to watch the England v Germany game and after 1-4 decided to turn coat to Argentina, we went off to an Argentina bar to support Argentina. Such a great laugh we met up with a few friends we made in the hostel, the atmosphere was great, horns, whistles, hooters and really cheap local beer. The barmaid told us there was ice skating on the Lake after the game so we went down to Largo Argentina to give it a go, however it has started to melt so no go for us! There was a fire dancer so we watched her and headed back to the hostel.
Today we got up early to get a bus to Perito Mareno Glacier nation Park to see the largest glacier in Argentina, the Patagonia's are very very lucky people having this. At this point in my travels it is the most spectacular thing I have seen....second to Iguassu Falls. We took a boat trip right up to the glacier which took us right up to it, I couldn't believe how big it was, 28km in length and 8 km wide and 60 meters high,
We woke up Tuesday to blizzards and snow everywhere so attempted to head into the town, it's incredible to think we have gone from hot in Rio to snow in a matter of 2 weeks. The crazy thing about this place is when you head out of your hostel a dog will follow you, then you turn around and there is 2, then after ten minuter 3...4...5, before we knew it we came out of the supermarket and there was a pack of dogs sat waiting for us. One think I find is the days go so quickly and everyone you meet is so friendly , you can make a friend in a matter of minutes. We have met a really great bunch of people here and are having such a great time, as we are all heading in different directions Wednesday we have all shared recommended hostels, places to visit. We will all probably meet again later in our travels when our paths cross again in Medozer!
We get a 27 hour night bus north to Bariloche today, that is Argentinian The Lake District so lots of trekking to be done as my ankle seems to be going down now.
