Penguins! Punta Arenas, Chile, Tuesday, 01 March 2005 11:45pm

Another two flights (a brief stop in Puerto Montt, without getting off of the plane, and our final arrival into Punta Arenas) on yet another type of plane (Boeing 767-300).

We caught enough of a second wind to make it across town to catch the tour ferry to Isla Magdalena, home to hundreds of thousands of penguins. A pod of dolphins played in our wake on the way over, and the penguins seemed very nonchalant about us traipsing around on their island (there's a roped-off path), so we got to see plenty of fun wildlife up close.

Now I need to get some real sleep before jumping another plane for Argentina tomorrow.
