Tuesday, February 3rd, Perito Moreno Glacier
Beautiful glacier, good weather, and interesting travelers. What a great day! On top of that, we had one of our best local tour guides, a refreshingly enthusiastic young woman named Dana who speaks with an Irish/English/Argentinian accent, maintains an office full of information in the bus seat, and brought out puppets at one point. She bowled us over by asking our names (and memorizing them), something few local tour guides have time or inclination to do. We're eager to see her again tomorrow.
We carry on to Upshala Glacier tomorrow, and are hoping the sun and wind are as unusually bright and calm as today. To see what I mean, click on the photos for the day at: Perito Moreno Glacier
