Staying in La Posta Hostel is a dream. It was recommended to us by lots of riders including Annaleen and Uli who we hosted in Vancouver on their way from Ushuia to Alaska.
We have a few days here before we leave for Antarctica to tour around.
It gave us time to try out all the places Wei suggested to eat. One of our favorites was Ramos Generales el Almacen, which is run by a French guy. The food and breads are amazing. We went there everyday! This is a submerino, which is hot liquor and hot milk that you drop the chocolate into.
That is why we met Blaine and Irene here 2 days in a row. We first met Blaine in Banos Ecuador in November.
We had to stop for photo ops at all the end of the world and Ushuaia signs.
One day we took the bike up to the base of the ski hill and then out to the airport for some nice views of the city.
Dan had lost his side stand extension on the ripio and so had a piece welded on.
The MS expedition was docked the night before we sailed.
We met up with our friends from Edmonton who were going on the cruise with us. We all stocked up on wine.
We finally boarded at 4 pm and had great views of the city.
The first order of business was the safety drill including life jacket and muster station drills.
I’m not sure I’d want to spend much time in the lifeboats.
We had booked a “steerage class” cabin, but were pleasantly surprised to find it was very nice.
We ate all our meals here with our favorite waiter Louis.
Garnet took very good care of us and always had our wine glasses set out.
The sickness bags every 5 feet were a bit worrisome.
We had a tour of the mudroom where we would gear up every day.
The captain invited us for a tour of the bridge.
The route to Antarctica!
