The Light of Day

Midnight in Ushuaia

5am in Ushuaia

Sunrise in Ushuaia

High Noon in Ushuaia

I decided to have a lazy day after the rather hectic escapades of the previous day/night. Ushuaia is a small picturesque coastal city (more like a town really) set into a hill. I rested up, with a siesta and then in the evening explored the area on foot. It feels as if there are more tourists here than locals and tonnes of yanks and brits doing the whirlwind tour of Argentina.

I was eating dinner at 11:30pm and it was still bright outside which was a little strange (see picture of ship above). Apparently, it's normally bright until 11pm this time of year but Argentina just reintroduced daylight saving a week ago so now it's bright here until midnight & beyond.

The ol' body clock was a tad confused and although the body was tired, the brain said, ah sure, go for one pint. The body was catching up with the brain at the karaoke bar at 5am having met some friendly locals who reintroduced me to the joys of late night singing and I ended up doing s rendition of 'Jailhouse Rock' at full pitch and when I was toasting the sunrise a few hours later on the roof of a hotel, both body & brain were in harmony. Alas, this staus quo was not to last and as of 8pm the following day my brain and body are still not on friendly terms.

Let that be a lesson to you young 'uns.
