Photographer's Note

It is about 80 km drive from El Calafate to Parque Nacional Los Glaciares in which you can admire the famous Perito Moreno and several other spectacular glaciers. Knowing that one of the natural wonders of the world is so close means that nobody really stops along these 80 kilometers, everybody is in hurry to see the breathtaking glacier as soon as possible as spend there as much time as possible. In spite of having amazing views along the road I also lied to myself that I will stop more frequently on the way back. It was surely a very good decision to rent a car. It gave us a lot of freedom to stay as long as we wanted and stop wherever we wished. The rental car registration was HUJ224, which made me laugh every time I looked at the car, as it would roughly translate into Polish as penis 224. This is one of the views which we enjoyed along that road. We were in Patagonia in November which means it was an early spring time. You can see that the bushes are already covered with the green leaves but the ground is still partially brown.
