Great article. Thanks. I need to go there. The black bird in the water is an Andean Coot. Your grey unknown bird is a Southern Lapwing. Tom

I must say again an impressive sharing from DrFumblefinger’s side. I really like to read your published blog posts. Moreover your collection of photographs that you have shared with us is amazing. I love such kind of natural spots to see the beauty of this world. I will be free after my seaworld adventure parks I would like to go there and capture the sights of this region in my own camera.

Visited the city as a port stop 28 January 2003. Cloudy when we arrived but soon the rain pounded us. Here's a pic of the maid's room in the Museo Regional Braun Menedez. A really outstanding lunch was at the Hotel Jose Nogueira's La Pergola restaurant while the rain showered its glass roof.

A cruise is my idea of a nightmare. I avoid boat journeys wherever possible - I have been known to take lengthy and rather circuitous plane rides to avoid having to go on a ferry. You know what they say about sea-sickness: "At first you feel you are going to die, but then it gets worse - you realise that you will not!"

Just a followup. Car experts have identified this as a 1929 Ford Model A. PHeymont was spot on in his analysis. Not the usual car you see in Argentina, but a delight to see nonetheless!

Ashley Ross ·
Really, Torres Del Paine one of the most famous national parks in the world, could become one of the best experiences in Chile. The famous W Trek in Torres Del Paine is the perfect destination for the adventurous traveller. I have almost finished 1 month trip in Chile with my family by the help of chiletourpatagonia.com . Really this place is so beautiful and attractive that was beyond my expectation. It was a memorable and adventures tour for us. It is a one of the best place for photographer.
