Paradise Found: 18 Hours of Daylight and King Crab

ARGENTINA | Monday, 14 January 2008 | Views [2200]

While Ushuaia may be windy and cold, you can't beat having 18 hours of daylight.  We reflect on what it's like back at home now in San Diego - getting dark before 5:00 p.m.  I get energy from daylight, and it's funny home at home it's hard to keep my eyes open past 10:00 p.m., but here in Ushuaia, I can go all day from 6:00 a.m. until midnight and not be tired until the sky finally goes dark.  I had a scientist friend in Belgium doing a study with mice, testing the effects of light and dark on sleep patterns.  There's definitely something to be said for the correlation between hours of light, and the ability to stay awake.  That was the hypothesis he was seeking to prove scientifically - I think I'm a great living example of it.

It's a good thing I'm now able to stay up late, because restaurants don't open their doors for dinner until late evening, and we arrive around 10:30 p.m. for one of our favorite meals here, King Crab.  The Crab is the most delicious here, and the gracious waiter at the restaurant La Cantina Fueguinade Freddy, reaches into the tank to grab a freshie, and asks Darrin to snap a shot so we can email him a copy.  We leave fat and happy, our big King Crab meal one we won't forget, along with the pictures to remind us!
