We still had a few days before our cruise to Antarctica, so John, Craig, an Australian who has done some treks with John before, and I decided to go on a multi-day trek in the area. We walked for several hours today through the national park near Ushuaia. The terrain was somewhat muddy, but of course beautiful. We camped near a lagoon where there were absolutely no other tourists. It was a little cold at night, but not too bad.
My only plan for the next few days is to get back to Ushuaia for the Super Bowl. "What's that, some kind of basketball game?" John questioned me when I told him of my plans. I don't think he was kidding. I guess that tells you how popular American football is in the rest of the world.
