Rio Gallegos


18th of February 2015
There is no mud, really!

Our journey from Ushuaia to Rio Gallegos went really fine without any unexpected incidents. More over, we could see in daylight the whole course towards  Tierra del Fuego...



The change of scenery, in comparison with the southern part of Argentina, was impressive. The island had dramatic landscapes, full of waterfalls, forests, mountains and glaciers. Everything was green and the vegetation was luxuriant with the exception of some really naked lands that looked quiet unearthly and reminded us of solidified lava. We crossed the borders with very little delay.
 


We waited only 10 minutes for the ferry, maybe even less. There was heavy rain at some point during the journey, while we were moving on dirt roads, but then we realized that what was written in the travel guides was correct: The dirt roads of Chile and Argentina never get muddy, no matter how heavy the rain might be. The only thing we noticed was that for a little while the dust created from the cars passing by was reduced.
 


We arrived at Rio Gallegos at around 10 something and went immediately to the hotel Air de Patagonia. We were acquainted with it since the last time we had spent the night there. Of course, we ate again the  parillia which we had adored. This time we tried also some lamb, apart from the veal, which we found very tasty. After having satisfied our appetite, we went to sleep really content with our superb meal.

It was drizzling when we left Rio Gallegos heading towards north, as far as we could reach.
