Fingers crossed I’m heading off south tomorrow. As such here’s some audio blogposts and photos from around Punta Arenas to celebrate.

One thought on “Farewell Punta

  1. Well Mike came back again after rubbing the toe but I didn’t rub the toe and I haven’t come back yet so it must work! Interesting music though not keen on the Thrash, would like to have heard the penguins dancing…
