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.

Here’s a screengrab of some of the photographs I took while I was in Argentina:

Argentina

I spent about 3 months travelling around South America. It’s a wonderful part of the world and three months is no way near enough. My cousin spent a year travelling around SA but even he said that wasn’t enough time.

Argentina was such an enormous and diverse country. I travelled around South America a lot by coach, in some cases spending nearly 24 hours on a coach. Fortunately most of the coaches are pretty comfortable.
