That’s running water beneath the glacier.

Everyone should have the chance to wander around on a glacier, it’s quite an experience, especially when massive chunks of it keep breaking off.

Perito Moreno Glacier - Drinking Whisky

At the end of the walk we were presented with a big glass of Jameson’s Whiskey complete with shaved ice from the glacier. Just what the Doctor ordered to warm one’s cockles.

It’s just a very impressive; massive block of ice.

Argentina – Penguin stalking

JV-penguins

Animals like to attack me. I’ve been chased by a cow, pecked by a penguin, stung by ants, sneezed on by a sheep, pick-pocketed by a monkey, slobbered on by a camel and stared out by a great white shark (the latter was from within a cage but still unnerving nonetheless).

There’s probably more incidents that i can’t quite recall right now.

I was squatting down trying to take pictures of these little fella’s when i felt a rather sharp pain in the side of my leg. One of these guys obviously decided i was getting too close and didn’t mind telling me.
