We don't have time to make it all the way to Ushuaia, aware that every mile we go south we will have to repeat when we make our way back up towards Mendoza, Buenos Aires, Uruguay and Brazil.
So, we how have an impressive red line scrawled across our South American map and we'll re-trace our steps a little bit to get back up north. We have about 10 days left to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Patagonia before we hop on another long-distance bus.
In the mean time we intend to make the most of our time here. We have done some really good hikes, enjoyed good red wine, the odd barbecue and discovered that salami and avocado sandwiches are divine. Camping is going well too, by the way. Our tent has already been tested by strong winds and heavy rain, and so far it is doing us proud. It does get very cold on a night down here, but we basically wear all of our clothes to sleep in. That does the trick.
We got to the Perito Moreno Glacier tomorrow, which was recently the star of BBC news when a huge chunk of ice collapsed into the lake. I'll keep my camera ready just in case we get lucky.
Should you be interested, the furthest north point of our trip was about seven weeks into our trip, in Park Tayrona in Colombia.
