Perito Monero Glacier

I am in Calafate, Argentina. Today I went to see the glacier of calfate. I had never seen such a HUGE piece of ice in my life. The tour guide said that this glacier is bigger than the whole entire city of Buenos Aires. It was amazing. I have come down here with 6 of my girl friends. We are staying in a hostel that is only 4 dollars a night. It´s so much fun. I am going to the most SOUTHERN city of our planet tomorrow. It is called Ushuaia and they refere to it as El fin del mundo(the end of the world!) can´t wait for tomorrow!
I will put up some pictures of my recent adventures later when I get back to Buenos Aires.

Having seen so many different types of nature(mountains, salt lands, waterfalls, the ocean, dry dry lands with cacti, indigenous villages...) has made me realise how much I actually love this world and how I am part of this crazy and wild nature. It is interesting to see yourself as part of this diverse nature. I am the nature! So are you! And we have to let our emotions, feelings, fears, happiness and sadness, boredom and excitement FLOW. As much as we sometimes feel as if we are machines and that we have to have control over all of our actions and feelings and decisions, it is important to remember that we are part of nature and that we need to let ourselves be sometimes! That is what Argentina is teaching me.
