South Patagonia

Chili and my trek in Torres del Paine with Adam, med student from Boston and Go from Japan

SL730573

 

Lets go! 10 hours of trekking with a big backpack, tent, sleeping , cooking kit

yes, there is sunlight from 5 am to 11 pm. THe hardest trek i have done in my life.people generally do this trek called the W in 4 to 5 days, we did it in 3. 

Wow

Walking hard was worth it > beautiful salida del sol  _sunrise_ on the Torres del Paine. It is 5 am, freezing cool, impossible to  boil water but good moment for a group picture

To my surprise Americans can not drive a stick. Adam almost killed us! Good laugh with our rented VW

But still, he got us here . Perito Moreno in Argentina

To my surprise, Ice is Celeste blue, just like the flag.

 

 

Trek El Chalten seems like a walk in a park for Adam and I after the W

Once again I confirm > the best Americans are OUTSIDE the USA
Adam was a really good travel companion. Curious, knowledgeable, funny, open minded. Kid has an ingineer undergrade degree, went to the MIT and is now in medschool and still cool headed
