After some last minute beurocracy that nearly shut us down, we´re finally out the door and in the zodiac to Seno Agostini for the start of this traverse! We´d like to thank the kind people of Punta Arenas who went way out of their way to help us.

She is a gem and none of us would be the least bit surprised if she´s runing this country one day! And everyone else, thank you, you know who you are!
