December 10, 2014
Here we are still inEl Chalten waiting for the gas station to open as there is no gas until El Calafate 230 km. we have a yerrycan   Of 10 liters and that could get us there but we do not want to take a chance. There are already 4 cars lined up and it is possible that there will be no gas until this afternoon, .fingers crossed. 
We did get gas and by the time we filled up there were a dozed cars behind us. How spoilt we are at home, just go and fill up. Never a worry that the station will run dry.
We drove to Parqie National los Glacially sur. To glacier Moreno.  What a spectacular sight. The park is well maintained as it is a Unesco Heritage site. Never have I been so close to a glacier and the sound of the ice breaking and witnessing the calving is unforgettable. I was lucky to get a picture of a big chunk breaking and to see the resulting wave.
 I know how fortunate I am to be able to make this journey and see all the things I had wished or dreamt to see. 
Hugs to all.
