30/12/2017 Glaciar Martial
Morning we stayed at home and trained Spanish and English with Cristina. We had to wait until 11am to walk to pickup our washed laundry.
Walked 30 minutes, paid 160 pesos, walked 30 minutes back and hanged the clothes to dry in our room.
Then we got out and slowly walked towards the city centre and trying to catch a taxi on the road. After 5 minutes we caught one and he took us up the hill to Glaciar Martial. We paid 230 pesos, taxi meter was on showing tariff 1.
The hike up the hill from the car park was about 1.5 hours and 1.5 hours back down the hill. It was mostly sunny. Time to time rain, snow, cloudy, windy. The views were okay. Nothing special. We took few photos and walked back to get a taxi to terminal omnibus in city centre.
Yesterday we spoke to our neighbours staying in the same flat as we are. Nice Austrian couple, so we are having a dinner with them today. In a restaurant they went to two days ago and recommended. The only glitch we got was that they showed me slightly different restaurant than they visited. But as we are quite similar nation, we both were on time at the wrong restaurant and met there in front of the entrance (most of the restaurants open at 7:30pm). Then we walked together to the correct one - Chicho’s. That was also closed so we had one drink in Cafe Bar Banana (paid 200 pesos) and then headed to Chicho’s.
Chicho’s restaurant is reasonably priced, and is located on Pres. Bernardino Rivadavia 72, Ushuaia. I’ll add photos of their menu later. We had really nice and enjoyable evening and me and my wife paid 950 pesos. (We came back to this restaurant 2 days later). And then taxi back to our accommodation for 250 pesos.
