Flight to Punta Arenas, Chile
31.08.2010 0 °F
Yet another plane to board on my way to Patagonia to the town of Punta Arenas, Chile. Over 12 hours of flying already and still counting. I boarded a plane in Santiago at 9:30 a.m. and will arrive in Punta Arenas at 3:00 p.m. Looking forward to this fucken flight!
Had a couple of stopovers on my way to Punta Arenas. I took a domestic flight on an airline that would be equivalent to Southwest in the states. Stopped in Puerto Montt and some other tiny town in the middle of nowhere. Stayed on the same plan the entire flight. The stopovers were brutal. We fly, land, people get off and others board, fly again, then land and people get on and off. By this time I'm so over flying.
Patagonia is a barren and unforgiving land. Here are a few shots from the plane. Frozen lakes everywhere. Snow, mountains, ocean, and deserts collide in this moon like landscape.
