El Calafate, Argentina

This blog post is long overdue.  Last weekend, I got back from a 17-day trip to Argentina to visit my friend, Clau.  From Buenos Aires, we flew down to El Calafate in the Santa Cruz Province on the Argentine side of Patagonia, which was our jumping off point to Perito Moreno Glacier and to El Chaltén.  I don’t think that I appreciated how far south Buenos Aires was from California, and Patagonia from Buenos Aires.  I could have stayed in Patagonia for months, it’s so incredibly beautiful!  When we arrived in El Calafate, there was a problem with our hotel (namely, that it was closed for business), but we were able to find a place that was a little further from the town center, but closer to the unbelievably blue Lago Argentino.  All of the cab drivers refused to drive on the road below, and instead insisted on driving around the entire town.  So that was special.
