Calafate

Enjoying an afternoon in Calafate- after the heat and chaos of BA, this place is is a welcome change.  And I’m finally, officially in Patagonia!  Here, it’s vast, arid and brown like the North American West, but has the frontier feel of Alaska.  It’s beautifully derelict.  A light snow, and enough space to see horizons.  Dogs seem as common as people on the streets downtown, sleeping on the road, or chasing cars. 

Tomorrow,  it’s off to Fitzroy for some backpacking.
