Puerto Madrin

sunny 25 °C

Puerto madrin, a medium town opon the coast of argentina. One of a collection of Welsh colonies. I never knew that the welsh actually ever got out of wales? Its a big mystery, but what is known is that they asked around for some land faaaaaar away from the english, and finally got offered a small area in argentina. They arrived to find a barron desert, no grass for sheep (disaster, obviously!) They scratched about in the dirt for a few years and the colonies nearly died, eventually the local indians saved their asses and showed them what was what!

Anyway the main attraction their now, apart from the tea rooms, is a peninsular national park. Sea lions and penguins inhabit the area, and orca and other wales are visiable at the right time of year.

We met a canadian guy called steve who was fun to chill out with.

Here are some photos.
