El Chalten

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 31 Mar 2018 | Views [220]

So it has been an embarrassingly, ridiculously, unacceptably long time since I’ve written, which is definitely a detriment to me more than anyone else. Hopefully I can recall the amazing details of tiny El Chalten and relate them to you! The most ... Read more >
