‘I’m coming to Santiago on Tuesday, and then a few days later heading south to Patagonia. We should meet up.’ Such was the communication from X, a friend from London who was living in Buenos Aires. ‘Sounds good,’ I replied. ‘I’ll be around. In fact I’d love to see the South too. Fancy adding one more to your travelling party?’
It seemed like too good an opportunity to miss. I didn’t know what to expect from the South apart from slightly colder weather, but I was more than ready for a new adventure into unknown terrain.
‘Sure,’ replied X. ‘My friend K is coming too, so it’ll be three of us.’
