I saw the End of the World

I’m talking about Ushuaia, of course. Not the end of the world that’s coming in 2012 with the solar galaxy aligning with the mayan temples and the illuminati opening the 7th seal. Ushuaia is called “la fin del mundo” in spanish because it’s the southernest city in Argentina, but not quite in the world. The real city at the end of the world is called Puerto Williams and it belongs to Chile, but don’t go telling that to Argentinians…

The one thing you see when you arrive in Ushuaia, is Nature. You have to cross the sea to get to Tierra Del Fuego, and then you corss big plains and you see a lake and then mountains! and you feel like you may be at 4000m of altitude, when you see the snowy summits like the little points on a saw, but you turn around and you see the sea and you realize you’re not in Nepal, but on sea level. And now you have snow in your shoes you have to get back to civlisation and a good hot chocolate because yeah it’s cold there.

So yeah, while going to Ushuaia I met a Chilean girl who’s Canadian for real and who speaks french (yep that kind of canadians, those I’ll go visit when I get there), an Algerian guy who’s French (and he taught me a bit of Kabyl), a german guy who speaks french, a french couple, some other french people and two or three french people I think. The only people who didn’t speak french in the hostel were israelians.

I might now guess the kind of progress I made in Spanish languaue while I was in Ushuaia.

But well you know, if I don’t learn spanish very quickly, it’s not the end of the world!

    J’ai l’impression de voir une voiture de mon enfance.

  6. Alban, bien sûr, c’est une Renault 12, mon père en avait une de la même couleur (mais tiens j’y pense, c’est peut-être elle, il l’avait revendu au demi-frère de mon oncle qui était parti vivre au Pérou – c’est bon tout le monde suit ?)

  7. Merci pour ces superbes photos! J’ai eu l’impression de revivre mon voyage sur place. C’est drôle car sur la route du glacier Martial (t’es monté à pied ou avec le télésiège ?), je me suis arrêté au même endroit pour prendre de photos ! (Sinon t’as oublié le “H” dans le titre de l’article)

  8. Merci Romuald.
    C’est dingue, j’ai pas pensé à la R12.
    Boudiou qu’ça m’rajeunit point !
    Heu … On peut peut-être demander à Joachim d’y retourner pour voir l’intérieur + de face et de dos pour vérifier si c’est celle de ton père ???
