El Chalten (Argentina) to Chile Chico (Chile).
Those of you who know me well enough will be aware that I can be very single minded. When I set myself a goal I dam well make sure I achieve it. If I couldn’t carry out my Argentina/Chile discovery anti-clockwise then I would do it clockwise. The ferry debacle was not going to sway my plans.
So at 21:30 I boarded a bus that would take me from picturesque El Chalten (Argentina) to little Chile Chico (Chile). This was to be the worst journey that I travelled on to date! The road was rough and the bus was old.
By 10:00 the next morning, having slept surprisingly well, I arrived at the sleepy little town of Los Antiguous (Argentina). From there a small group of us boarded a minibus that took us across the border into Chile.
Chile Chico – I just love the name and I just loved this town – quiet and compact.
I stayed in a Hospedaje (a mixture of home stay/hotel/B&B) and the little old lady who ran the place made a real fuss of me.
Next stage: Chile Chico to Puerta Tranquil.
