Torres Del Paine National Park, Chile, January 4, 2018

Last night, I decided not to upgrade - a dorm would be fine because most of our dorm sleepers are very quiet and respectful.  Low and behold  Weibke and I shared a twin room!  She snored and kept me awake in the night and I snored and kept her awake this morning!

The truck showed up around 9:30 and we left by 11, only to have to fill with diesel.  While sitting in the truck, a gaucho was in the parking lot.  Look at that costume-

He has 600 cows, 35 horses, 15 working horses and 2800 hectares of land.  

Eventually we were on our way, only to find a slow washboard gravel road that allowed us to travel around 15 km/hour so a 1.5 hour drive turned into a 3.5 hour one!

Along the way-

There's a sheep dog on the left-

We arrived at the campsite and set up our tents, then hung out in the truck where it was nice and warm until supper.  Looking forward to a good sleep back in my tent!
