Ushuaia

Ushuaia is the southernmost city in South America.  So everything is the southernmost… the pizza place, a pub, whatever, is billed as the southernmost.

This city is so close to the south pole that the curvature of the earth makes the horizon veer down to the left.  Ha!

You might notice these were taken from our balcony on the ship… a nice view, inspiring a bit of sailboat envy.  But some of the waters we’ve traversed lately erase small boat envy, at least in this part of the world!

This is Lago Acigami, way south in Argentina.

So here is the southernmost post office in South America.  If you didn’t get a postcard from us, don’t feel bad.  Nobody else did either.  It was closed.

  1. Great pics!! We enjoy traveling along with you. The southern most city in South America has actually never been on my bucket list. 🙂 I have been to Columbia, Venezuela and Peru, but not south of there. Thanks for taking us along!

  2. Is it worth spending an entire day exploring the city? We are trying to decide if we visit Tierra del Fuego National Park and have 2-3 hours to explore before our cruise if it’s worth spending an entire day in the city after our cruise.
