Monday photo - 5th November


The descent into Ushuaia was simultaneously amazing and terrifying. As we dropped through the cloud, high snow-topped mountains reared up around us, with deep blue lakes pocketed between them. Moments after snapping this picture from my window, the plane squeezed between two very sharp-looking mountains, before circling the waters of the Beagle Channel and making an impressive landing on a narrow runway, jutting out into the channel like a boat pier. I think everyone on the plane was alternating between gasping with amazement at the beautiful sights that welcomed us to this most southerly town, and holding their breath as the tricky landing became apparent...
