30th March – Reflections on Ushuaia

Decided to stay an extra day in Ushuaia to climb to Glacier Martial or a tour by boat to see some penguins but it didnt pan out that way.

We changed rooms as the hostel is expecting big group so moved from
Our luxury room into a dorm upon where we discovered they had bed bugs.


So all along when we thought Julie had brought the bugs from Buenos Aires, they had the problem already. Do we spent the morning emptying bags and cleaning so by the time we finished it was too late for the walk or tour.

The beagle channel sits in front of Ushuaia and at sunrise and sunset it can be very pretty. Julie and I walked around at a leisurely pace and took photos at the same time.


The reflection of the mountains in the lake was exceptional, the clearest I have ever seen, just like a mirror. This is what we wanted to see on our travels and there it was.

Went the the southernmost Carrefour in the world and got ourselves some lunch and dinner and also a little something for the 15 hour journey to Puerto Natales.


In the evening we relaxed watching tv with the other Dutch travellers, sharing stories and our hate for this Australian guy who did the Peninsula Valdes tour with us.

En français:

Rien de prévu aujourd’hui, on verra si on a assez d’énergie pour aller jusqu’au glacier Martial juste au dessus d’Ushuaia.


Pour notre dernière nuit, on doit changer de chambre car deux groupes de campeurs vont envahir l’auberge ce soir. Les hollandais et nous devont nous installer tous ensemble dans un nouveau dortoir.


Quand on s’installe je remarque qu’il y a des puces de matelas qui courent sur les lits donc je préviens la réception pour qu’ils fassent venir les exterminateurs.

Plus tard, on va en ville pour prendre des photos d’Ushuaia et des montagnes environnantes.
On fait les courses pour déjeuner puis vers 14h30, on est de retour à l’auberge, on cuisine assez pour le midi et le soir pour ne pas avoir à faire la queue pour utiliser la cuisine ce soir.


On passe l’après-midi à organiser la suite du programme. Pas de trek jusqu’au glacier pour nous.

Après le dîner, on va dans la chambre et dès que je me couche je suis en train de me gratter ça promet.
