***PHOTOS CROPPED WRONG, CLICK FOR FULL RESOLUTION***
I landed in Buenos Aires without problem, the flight itself actually wasn´t disagreeable for once. After a bus into the centre, I met with my host, Guillermo at his home, in which I was treated as if I were family. After exploring BA for four days, and swimming in Gil´s parents great swimming pool (it is hot here, like Brisbane) I booked (twice) and took a bus from BA to Rio Gallegos.
The bus trip began with a false start, due to washing my pants with the precious ticket in the pocket, then showing up to Retiro terminal and hour and a half after the bus had already left. Luckily the lady at the ticket office gave me a vastly reduced fare for the next morning, likely due to my pitiful show. The 38 hour trip was comfortable but boring, endless pampas (plains) as far as the eye could see for days.
I then took another 12 hour bus from Rio Gallegos to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, and trekked with some new-found friends to a nearby glacier. The glacier itself was not breathtaking, but the surrounding scenery certainly was. I plan to leave Ushuaia on my intact and assembled bicycle tomorrow (update: the day after tomorrow). Wish me luck!
