Buenos Aires. This morning, after travelling 25 hours, we finally reached our first stage on our long journey to Antarctica.
Leaving Buenos Aires by bus direction to Mar del Plata was pretty uneventful. First, I was a bit anxious to sleep in order not to miss anything, but the landscape turned out to be infinetely vast and flat and flood, a birders paradise.
Getting on the road with three big suitcases, one backpack, computer case, in total 90 kilos, is not easy, but it is suprising how much help you get when you're obviously not able to move otherwise ;-)
11:45 p.m. (Oct. 13th): the taxi picks me up and brings me straight to the airport. Fairbanks already got its first snow and luckily the roads are fine and not slippery as in the mornings this week.
