Finally in Ushuaia

After a 100 year rain even hit Buenos Aires the day we landed, our flight to Ushuaia was cancelled so we slept in the airport to make sure we got a flight out the next day.  The storm knocked out power throughout much of Buenos Aires and streets were flooded around the city with as much as five feet of water.  We could only fly out of a second airport so had to wait for water to recede before taxis could get us there.  After a few more lengthy delays we finally made it to Ushuaia.  It’s cool and windy down here – beautiful mountains surrounding town. We made it just in time as our ship leaves tomorrow.

    All great Antarctic explorers have faced obstacles. Way to hang in there Aldo! I hope the parents weren’t too much trouble.
