We then got to see them alot closer on a boat trip we took; when we saw a mother with her calf who held herself with just her enormous tail sticking out of the water for periods of over 5 minutes, and another large adult (who must have been at least as long as a bus) that was very gracefully slowly swimming around our boat and (rather worryingly) under it times when it would surface to blow a huge spray of water right next to us…

After an other VERY long bus ride we have arrived into Rio Gallagos. We woke this morning on the bus to see the world covered in snow, shortly after which the bus broke down leaving us in the middle of a snow storm in the Patagonian desert – which is a nothingness of bleak baron scrub land stretching of into the distance in all directions. Finally after 6hr we were rescued by another bus and arrived into Rio Gallagos 25hrs after setting of from Puerto Madryn.
And tommorrow we continue our journey to Ushuaia and the bottom of the world!!! Just another 10hr bus ride left to the southern most city in the world.
