Day 216 – Ushuaia, AR

Day 216 – Ushuaia, Argentina      03/25/11       Mileage: 0

Ushuaia is a long way to go for a photograph, but like life, it’s all about the journey and not where you end up. For me it’s been an amazing journey on many levels and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity. The end, when it comes, will be bittersweet I’m sure. So after spending the morning updating the blog and returning emails, I walked around downtown Ushuaia and it really is quite a nice little town…a nice mix of local and tourist oriented businesses.

The weather is also surprisingly warm for being this far south and given it’s location on the water. Late in the afternoon Beto and Tracy (the couple I met in Machu Picchu and again in El Calafate) arrived at the hostal on their KTM 990. It was great to catch up with them and we celebrated our arrival in Ushuaia that night in an Irish pub in town. We had as many laughs as we did beers and Beto also had a celebratory fox hat that he was saving for the occasion…too funny!

Tomorrow, it’s back on the road, but this time it’s the road north…the road home…

    Wow, Love your words. What wonderful adventures and great people you have met and they you. I love being on this trip with you but staying nice and warm in my house. Tonight your parents are coming for dinner along with the Appels, Lancin’s and Shechters. It is a fund raiser for the synagogue but for me it is nice having friends coming who I don’t have to impress at all. Love reading your daily travels and keep on having fun.

    Lenny, just checking in and see that Carla wrote to you already. Dad and I have truly been blessed by wonderful friends here in Toms River and others that we have had for many, many years. So glad to see that you are experiencing the same in life. Your friends become your chosen family and we all have been very lucky. You have met some fantastic people along the way and even Lily’s family were just wonderful. I hope that you continue to meet wonderful people on the way back and that Sabine and John get to connect with you.

    Everything is just so beautiful. Keep up the good work and be well and safe and happy. Got to get ready to go to Carla and Stan’s. Love, Mom
