We woke up at 5am, after going to bed at 2am to hop in a taxi to take us to EZE (Buenos Aires) Airport. Needless to say we were really really really fucking tired, but we made it. Then hopped on a 3.5 hour flight and made it to Ushuaia.
We were on a massive 747 that was totally full. Apparently, there are many flights going to Ushuaia this time of year and they’re all full. The airport is the size of… well, it’s just really fucking small and getting your luggage from the carousel is difficult.
Ushuaia is the world’s southernmost city and is the capital of Tierra Del Fuego. It was about 8 degrees C when we arrived. We hopped into a cab and I went to 3 last minute Antarctica offices. No luck. Not going to Antarctica. I thought I may have to get from the flight directly on a ship, so as a result, I didn’t book accommodation. Well it’s high season. Fortunately, our trusty lonely planet pointed us in the direction of a nice B&B and we’re in a log cabin. That’s after trying to find accommodation for an hour in a pizza shop. The place is called: Cabañas Aves del Sur. It’s really pleasant, but we can only stay one night here as everything else is booked up. We just woke up from a long nap, which kind of sucks, but hopefully by tomorrow we’ll be on a “normal” schedule.
The owner of the BnB suggested for us lots and lots of things to do, so that’ll be cool. I’ll add some more photos soon.
