The plan for the next few weeks is to head to the Lake District in the middle of Chile for week. Then go to the southern most city in the world, Ushuaia, Argentina. Camping in Torres del Paine and Tierra del Fuego. This is something that I have always wanted to do.March 25, 2008: I am living on buses. 13 hours from Santiago to Puerto Montt (1000km south). We tried an little adventure. We were going to take a bus to a ferry to a bus to a ferry kinda deal, but we got halfway there and the next ferry only runs in the summer. So that idea went out the window. Plans quickly changed as we arrived at a bus station at 1:27 and there was a bus going to Argentina at 1:30. We made it on and now it is 7 hours from Puerto Montt, Chile to Bariloche, Argentina. From there, we are going to a smaller town called El Bolson. Our guidebook describes it as:
Hippies rejoice - there’s a must see destination for you in Argentina. Within it’s liberal and artsy borders live alternative lifestyle folks from all over the country who have made their town an ecological municipality. El Bolson is peaceful, plain, and unpretentious, surrounded by dramatically jagged mountain peaks that host activities for nature lovers. Look out El Bolson, here come Danielle, Leo, and Rory!
