El Calafate

In El Calafate we were parked at a technical school and this morning were allowed to use their WiFi. In these remote towns it is often hard to find WiFi, and I do not like sitting in an internet place.
We are now in Chile and border crossing was quick as we now know what not to bring.
The drive to Torres del Paine was all on Rippo "gravel" road and hard on the car but the scenery is spectacular. Wherever we stop we hurry back in the camper as the wind is so fierce that   It could blow one over. At the park office we met Chantal and Deni, from Gatineau Quebec.
Thy are traveling south america by Bus. It is always nice to meet fellow Canadians.
We are parked by a lake but can not go outside for the wind. Hope tomorrow it will be better.
The park warden told us that this is exceptional. Went for a hike to the waterfall and then drove to Punta Arenas to wait for the ferry to Porvenir. We could sleep right in the lineup lane. Had a nice and quiet nite.
Got on the ferry at 9 am. And it is a 2.5 hour sailing. Met Jilles Robert from quebec. He is on a motorcycle and has to fight the wind constantly.
