After a week and half cruising along Chile’s beautiful western border, we came to Argentina, my 6th new country on this trip. More specifically, we docked in Ushuaia, the self-proclaimed southernmost city in the world*, part of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago in mythical Patagonia. Its Fin del Mundo / “End of the World” nickname gleefully adorns signs and merchandise at every opportunity.
In the morning, we boarded a (huge) catamaran and cruised for a total of 6 hours, round-trip.
