This is Cape Horn. We are sailing in the Drake Passage and following in the footsteps (if one can use that term at sea) of Magellan and Drake and Shackleton.

Sun shone until almost 11pm, and overnight it was still light enough to read on deck – if you were so inclined, as the temperature was a balmy 25 degrees (F).

And this is your approach into Ushuaia harbor.  Ushuaia boasts that it is the southernmost city in the world.  It is also fascinating.  And the air is incredible.  It’s like breathing champagne, crisp and clean and bubbly.
