Ushuaia is like a little frontier town tucked away in a bay cradled by snow-capped mountains. It is at the tip of Tierra Del Fuego.
We were heading off to go around the Horn. The seas were rough. I was imagining what it would have been like in those old wooden ships.
I was also imagining the slaughter of all the wildlife when those ships first arrived. They visited the breeding sites and killed everything in sight. They took tons of ‘meat’ on board and left rotting carcasses behind them.
When Darwin was around wildlife was plentiful. Now it is rare.
