World´s End - Ushuaia, Argentina

A half hour later we found a cute hostel at the top of a hill that overlooked the town, the mountains and the Beagle Channel. A private room with a window for a wall we pulled the mattresses off the bunks and slept on the floor. A cat would often frequent my lap as well. Our only day at the end of the earth was spent like any other. Excursions to Puerto Williams or to Parque National Tierra del Fuego were unfortunately too expensive so we entertained ourselves. We walked to a cemetary that was unlike any other in South America. Covered in snow with no walkways to visit the graves we basically walked down an unshoveled stairway which acted more of a shortcut through town than a sight to see. We walked around town, investigated bus tickets, ate food and enjoyed the fact that we made it here. That night the wind howled against the house and in the morning we headed North.
