Photo du jour

Ushuaia, Argentina -- the southernmost city in the world, where the ships leave for Antarctica. 

Today we will be flying from Santiago, Chile into Ushuaia and boarding our ship.  Here's what Ushuaia looked like three years ago; I suspect it hasn't changed much.

Photo du jour

Today I'm off on an adventure -- a trip to Antarctica!

I've always been intrigued by the cold places of the world, and have always loved ocean voyages and the thought of going somewhere that most people don't.  So this trip is a three-fer.

This particular iceberg was in a glacial lake in Patagonia, where we visited in 2007.  I suspect we'll be seeing much bigger and stranger ones on this trip!  I'll have lots of pictures to share when I get home.

Meanwhile, if Blogger cooperates, I'll have a new photo du jour every day I'm gone.  See you in a couple of weeks!
