In these shots, you can see the HMS Justice (beached and abandoned in 1957). It's still just sitting there... not sure exactly why but I guess it makes an interesting photo! It's quite a busy port city here, so big boats and shipping containers abound!
We got a tip about a gym (with spin classes!). That's the one with the sign that has penguins lifting weights on it. Sandra and I went today and had a pretty good time. Although all of the instructions were in Spanish, we think we pretty much nailed it. Stand up, sit down, more resistance, harder harder rest. We can do that.
Lots of beautiful dogs around the city, many just abandoned by their owners or feral. Sad to see so many cute pups meandering about in search of food. The problem is pretty widespread around Argentina and Chile, but it's starting to get more attention as groups spring up to try to curb the problem.
We purchased our rain pants for Antarctica yesterday. A steal at about $75 USD per pair. We were sadly considering grabbing crazy Gore Tex pants at a cost of about $400 USD per pair. Gross. Good thing we managed to find a store selling cheapies! It's scary how little stuff is actually available. We could rent if it weren't for the pesky fact that our particular cruise ends in Buenos Aires. Oops. Now all we need are some gloves and hats. They may be difficult to find as Tuesday is a holiday (Carnival/Mardi Gras). Although they celebrate it here in Ushuaia, something tells me it might be a little more tame than Rio...
A pizza dinner and romantic ice cream date capped off the day. We'll continue our little missions tomorrow with the anticipation of the upcoming cruise continuing to mount.
