The program director Laura:
The entire group in front of the Pia Glacier:
We flied in and out of this capital of Argentina for the trip. The pick palace is where Evita once addressed her people, and also the residence of the current president Christina.
We had pizza in a popular pizza place, where I found this cute girl sitting behind me. And we had a "conversation" with my limited Spanish. We then took a subway to visit the street flea market.
e saw a tango show the night before e left Buenos Aires. That was indeed all about passion and fancy foot works!
The Perito Moreno Glacier:
We had snow flakes on this day, but still we were impressed by the grand view of the Moreno Glacier:
The small iceburg I was holding is 500 years old:
The views were simply spectacular! We did a few hikes on both the east and west sides of the ranges:

Leaving Punta Arenas:
This is certainly the highlight of the entire trip. We were lucky that the weather allowed us to land on rubber boats. A 140 steps climb led us to the top of the rock to visit the sculpture and the light house.
Argentinians consider this town the final frontier of their world. This is also Laura's home. We had a nice visit in her friend's (Gabby the hostess) house. She fixed lentil soup, spinach biscuits and desserts for us.
When on board, there is an open bar and we all enjoyed it, especially the ladies:
This photo of me taken by Patti at Cape Horn said it all of how much an engaging experience and how happy I was on this journey.
