- El Calafate: The Big Ice, Perito Moreno GlacierWe woke up the next day and I was kaput. Completely broken and not in good enough working order for even a short hike so we took the day off.

- Hike number two in El Chalten, ArgentinaAfter the exhilaration of yesterday's hike we woke up early(ish) to tackle Laguna de Los Tres.

- Eating and drinking. And eating. And drinking. And...It's weird, ordinarily we would get sick of restaurant dining after a few days. It becomes too much, but eating a slab of meat every night is surprisingly sustainable!
