Ushuaia, The End of the World
The very name Ushuaia conjurers up ideas of far away places and the “fin del mundo” or “end of the world” certainly didn’t disappoint. Its geographical isolation makes its charm feel all the more impressive. Here below watchful snowy peaks we looked out down the magnificent Beagle Channel towards the Antarctic wilderness. Our journey across the South American continent was complete. Our local friend Monica introduced us to the vibrant local community. Although a fully fledged city, everybody knew everybody and there was a great sense of community into which to we were welcomed with open arms.
Ushuaia is famous for its seafood, with the local delicacy being Centolla king crab. Flanking the harbour was an array of local eateries offering a fresh catch and a warm place to eat. The portions were enormous and the succulent taste of king crab caught at the end of the world will be hard to beat. We spent our days exploring around the local hills, taking in the scenery and eating in various restaurants each with a view more spectacular than the last. For the first time in a while we were heading north and it was difficult to say goodbye to the stunning Ushuaia.
