Ruta 40…again

Thirty kms. out of El Calafate is Ruta 40. This time near its start point only 274 kms. from Rio Gallegos and 4000 kms. further south than when I joined it at Cafayate.


The Pategonian landscape continues to impress for its desolation. I drive until the Rio Santa Cruz and then return home and hand the car back to Hertz.


Tomorrow, Friday, I will head for the southernmost city in the world. Further south than the Falkland Islands, but oddly, no further south than Belfast is to the north…its a funny old world.
