we're back and have 3000 photos to prove it

These pics are from the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, Argentina. Also referred to as Tierra del Fuego (the Argentine province it is a part of). I froze. Fortunately, I had also frozen the day before in Punta Arenas, Chile, so I picked up this lovely handwoven wool ear sock at a local market for only 1000 pesos. The climate here is referred to as "maritime subarctic." I only wish I would have read that before leaving the states, perhaps I would have thought to bring a coat? So ... this is me with 5 layers. We also got to check out the Beagle Channel wildlife here via catamaran. Little known fact: Ushuaia is the last stop on the Pan-American Highway. Left taken by bam; center, right by blm. PS--We'll have way more pix to come once we get through them all. We're still gettin' back into the swing of things.

What an amazing trip! I am incredibly jealous. Punta Arenas was part of my mission... And to think, it's summer down there and it's still that cold!
By the way, I think your next traveling adventure should include the North Carolina coast...maybe in March? :)
