Back On Line (II)

Hello Friends:

Back on line. Luckely I am travelling a lot this part of the year.  Because of work, this last week, I was in Ushuaia.  For those of you that still do not know, I am from Argentina. And we have this marvelous city and this iconic lighthouse to show to the world. 

And always remember.  This is Les Éclaireurs.  It is not the Lighthouse of the End of the World. That one is San Juan de Salvamento and is located about 300 kms to the east and it is extremely difficult to visit.








You are welcome to visit the city and navigate the waters of the Beagle Channel.

Not much info to update, but that is for tomorrow and the next days.
Regards
Carlos
