I thought the peso just went down, not up?diego7david said:thanks guys. i have time for a slow trip in january. so i look forward to the trip and whatever it entails. in 2005 i hitch hiked from puerto natales around torre del paine nat park in chile and enjoyed a magnificent time at lago grey. i will post about my patagonia adventure afterwards (if i survive the pirates, aborigines, tourists, wild animals and the ups and downs of the peso).
