How To Flee Patagonia in Nine Easy Steps

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 30 Mar 2008 | Views [1517]

I mistakenly spent two full months in Patagonian Argentina. What can I say? It's pretty much a perfect place. But that left a mere three months for the rest of my journey to Ecuador, so Kyle and I balled it through all of central and northern Chile and ... Read more >

Estancia La Pampa

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 8 Mar 2008 | Views [6698] | Comments [6]

Abel Navarrete doesn't leave home much. As infrequently as once every two years, he fires up his red Ford truck and drives the 50 km into Tres Lagos to resupply before heading back to Estancia La Pampa. He's the only person living out there, one lonely ... Read more >

El Fin del Mundo

ARGENTINA | Monday, 4 Feb 2008 | Views [2113] | Comments [9]

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 24 Jan 2008 | Views [979] | Comments [8]

The prints were large, about four inches long and two inches wide. A series of them led off across the wet sand, disappearing over a hill. They were shaped like the letter ¨Y¨ with an extra prong in the middle, or like an upide-down peace symbol without ... Read more >

I visited Uruguay

URUGUAY | Tuesday, 22 Jan 2008 | Views [1352]

For three days. It's true. But it won´t show on my map unless I write something about it. So here: people in Uruguay have an unhealthy and rather amusing addiction to mate .
