I’m nearly there! Ushuaia is the most southerly town in the world.

Camping in the park in Pigue, Argentina. Lovely little farming town. Camping makes me happy, no matter how bad the day of driving has been. As soon as I start setting up my tent my spirits soar.

This is for my HK friends, who always take pictures of their food. I cook on one box, sit on the other. Here you have pasta with dried chilies from Mexico, salt taken from Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia, sausage and veggies from Argentina, and a mug of cold beer. Gusto!

On my way to Remico, Argentina. I think it’s the most southerly Mennonite colony in the world.

  1. Merry Christmas from a fresh and beautifully sunny Manitoba.-26c here this morning. Just finished looking at the latest pics. Very nice! Looking forward to the stories when you get back

  2. Merry Christmas, Cameron! Good job milking the cows. All those years of milking the turkeys back on the farm paid off, eh?
