Well I’ve discovered a place with worse Internet than remote areas of Nepal. Have had a couple of awesome days I’d like to tell you about and send you pictures of – but that may not happen while I’m here. “Here” being El Chalten in Argentina.
Yesterday I started off on a two hour hike – which turned into six hours – not by accident but because the scenery was so incredible and huge I just couldn’t stop walking and investigating what might be behind the next rise. I walked up to Glacier Grande which is part of the great southern ice field… YES even after travelling all day by bus two days ago – the ice field continues to be present!
Today I had a marvellous morning riding a huge black horse by name of Kan. Seems like a very understated name for such a cool horse. Hopefully pictures of both events will be coming to you soon! The riding was so much fun I think I’ll do that again instead of a hike.
Currently it is raining and storming so hard! The rain is coming sideways and in great sheets. I’m so very happy to be in a really nice hostel siting on a comfortable couch with a hot cup of tea. Kinda wish they served food other than at breakfast. Soon I’ll need to brave the horrendous weather – by far the worst I’ve experienced on this trip – and acquire lunch. Hopefully without blowing away in the process.
