We were sad to leave but eager to start our voyage to the Falkland Islands/Malvinas, then on to South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula before returning to the South American mainland and the city of Ushuaia.
As we left the port of Buenos Aires, we passed the famous natural area known as Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur. It is remarkable that such a wild place is within one of the biggest cities in the world. The skyline of Buenos Aires is almost the last land we will now see for three days as we steam south. We wish ourselves smooth sailing!
