Bon and I got up and to the bus terminal (just a block away) by 6:30 am, it opened 15 min later and at first the computer system was acting up just like yesterday. Finally, the gal gave a great sigh and all went well. We shelled out our 362p ($91 US) for buses to get us to Ushuaia from here...our most costly travel yet (other than plane tickets). We are in high tourist season for sure, no locals on these buses!
While in line to get our tickets yesterday we ran into travellers, Shaun and Helen, who we now met in a cafe and exchanged stories of our adventures since we last say them in MX! More later when we meet up in Ushuaia we hope. Got an email from Jake who got stuck in O'Higgins when the ferry didn't go due to high winds. He hopes to lv today but will not meet up w/ us until after 21st in Ushuaia.
Our bus left shortly after 2, the four hour ride was uneventful...we saw huge, wide open spaces, grazing sheep & horses, once in awhile guanacos and rheas and some wetlands (flamigos). When we arr we ckd with the helpful tourist kiosk in the bus terminal, and the lady directed us to Hospedaje Polideportivo Atsa just 6 blocks from terminal. Very nice place w/ kitchen where we could fix our own pizzas! Yum!Rhea InfoMore Specific Rhea InfoGuanaco Info
