We're Here !!!
We arrived in Punta Arenas very late last night ....with all of our gear ! It was close- we weren't sure if Chilean border guards would let our Pemmican and dehydrated cheese through- but thankfully they did. This incredible city- the furthest south in the world- is steeped in history. The gatekeeper to the Drake Passage, in the days of travelling by sea prior to the Panama Canal- it was a main stopping point. Explorers and mountaineers from around the world meet here before launching expeditions...people like us !
