We've arrived in Patagonia later than I'd like but I'm still hugely excited. Tomorrow we are walking on the Glaciar Perito Moreno which has a footprint larger than Buenos Aires and is the only glaciar in the world that is neither growing nor shrinking.

We are currently staying in El Calafate which is both touristy and isololated. It feels very wild and in the autumn is an island of yellow trees in a landscape of brown, blue and white.

As a lover of beef Argentinian steak more than lives up to it's reputation. The bife de chorizo cut I had in Bariloche is one of the best plates of food I've ever eaten, and it was the only thing on the plate.

We won't make it to the Torres del Paine which is very dissapointing but the cut off for many hostels and tourist services here is the 30th of April and no later.

Instead we are heading to El Chalten to walk under the mountain peak of Fitz Roy and see maybe the deep red of Patagonia in autumn if we're lucky.
