PATAGONIA VIDEO

P A T A G O N I A

The HIGHLIGHT of my two month South America Adventure from Lima Peru  and Inca Trails in the north to Ushsaia Argentina, the southern most city in the world, has to be PATAGONIA. Here is a link to a video representative of a few of the places I visited in Patagonia. Much much more! This is a pretty clean look at Patagonia. Missing is the thousands of miles of dirt highways and thousands of little makeshift homesteads and livestock strolling about. Split windshield VW Buses, Hitchhikers and Hikers. Rivers and lakes beyond belief. Highways that dead end into a body of water with a ferry crossing. Some ferries run one or two days per week. Most at least once per day. Border crossings. Bank ATM machines that would challenge even Butch & Sundance. Wild & Beautiful !
