Just so I remember

sunny 15 °C
View Global Hoboing: South America on BatSoo's travel map.

Notable meals I manage to cook so far using sometimes awful, sometimes lovely hostel kitchens:

-Ushuaia (La Posta Alberque)
Scrambled eggs with garlic, onion, eggplant, and tomato simmered in arrabiata tomato sauce (the tomato sauce was store bought. Knorr.) Side dishes were steaming hot boiled potato and spicy vinegary coleslaw
....and who could forget the 1 dollar bottle of wine that was more of bitter grape juice than wine

-El Calafate (I Keu Ken)
Garlicky spinach and potato soup (with whole black peppercorns and two large pieces of lemon zest). Had it with minced tomato and pastrami strewn on top. Topped it all off with pan arabe (large round bread) with some liberal amount of skim milk ricotta smeared on as well as slices of field cucumber. Tim the Aussie traveller gave me a glass of wine, which made it a feast.

As for destination update, I´m in El Calafate, staying at yet another GREAT hostel. It´s called I Keu Ken, and it´s located on a hill looking over the lake and the mountains behind it. The sunset from the porch is quite the sight. It looks... just like the Rockies.

Went to see the Perito Moreno glaciers today. It was majestic and expensive. And cold. It rained. I tingled in happiness regardless. It looks just like the paintings of Group of Seven. The Canadian gal is going to be just fine here in this lovely hostel. (It helps that the hostel is across the street from the biggest supermarket in town...)

Travel tip #7: When asking someone to take a I-was-here photo of you (an eventual necessity if you are travelling alone), pick the person with the biggest SLR.
