After my amazing time in Futaleufu, finally there was a bus to move on. I went to Puerto Rio Tranquilo, a tiny town further south along the Carreterra Austral in Chile. It rained a lot still so I did not do all the things I wanted to do but I did get a morning of sun for visiting the marble caves. The rocks on the coast of the lake are marble and with the erosion of water, some caves formed leaving the beautifully polished rock exposed to the sun´s reflection on the water and onto the white rock surface. the water is blue transparent so it was really gorgeous to see, it had to be done with sun and I got it so I was happy! The return on the boat was painful for the butt though cause this lake is the second largest in south america which the waves are as big as sea waves ! ouch.

After that, I had to find my way back to Argentina and be on time to meet Isabella who was joining me in El Calafate. The only way was to get to Chile Chico, a tiny town next to the border and hitch hike and walk through the border. I was not the most successful at hitch hiking, I managed to get picked on the chilean side by a lovely lady but in between borders and on the argentinian side, my pride was hurt. Hitchhiking is really painful on the soul I found haha. It was good for me to train on walking with a backpack though. From Los Antiguos, the small town at the border on the argentinian side, I got a bus to El Calafate and waited for Isa´s arrival!!
