Nightmare Bus Journey

We left lovely Ushuaia,in Argentina, and set off on our 12 hour bus journey to Punta Arenas,in Chile.Unfortunately 12 hours turned into 17 as we had to wait 5 hours for the road to clear in Ushuaia after protests about the local mayor.I`m not sure why he had upset so many people but it was eventually resolved.Punto Arenas looked a bit of a dump, and once again everywhere was shut because of a festival so we got a bus the next morning tp Puerto Natales.It meant we missed out on watching the penguins but I`m sure they will get over it.
