We were up really early for a 6:15 AM pickup for the Buenos Aires Domestic Airport. It would have been very helpful in this leg of the trip to be able to speak Spanish! We made it through checking our bags, security and finding our gate with a lot of symbol reading and guesses. Our flight from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia was 3 1/2 hours. Quark’s representative met a group of us at the airport and took us to our hotel.
After settling in quickly, we adventured into the center of town. The hilly roads reminded us of San Francisco. We walked from one end of the city to the other. The shops were filled with penguin merchandise. It was a good thing that Argentina had strict weight limits on luggage.
We got back to our hotel in time for a meeting with the Quark representative to go over our embarkation instructions for tomorrow afternoon! After the meeting Dave and I had dinner at a local restaurant that offered a gluten free menu. The food was delicious!
