A short plane flight from Buenos Aires took me to an armpit of a town known as Rio Gallegos. From Rio Gallegos I crossed by bus from Argentina into Chile and back into Argentina en route to Tierra Del Fuego. The final destination was Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world.

Ushuaia is famous for penguins, Antarctic cruises, Tierra Del Fuego National Park, and the Beagle Channel, named after Charles Darwin´s famous ship.

We went on a day hike in Tierra Del Fuego National Park. Tierra Del Fuego is known for its unpredicatable weather, during our hike the weather changed from warm and pleasant to windy and cold.

A huge and delicious 5 dollar sandwich that fed me for two meals in Ushuaia.
