The trip to Patagonia has unlocked a new way of looking at the world. It has never seemed so gigantic. So naturopathic. I felt like I was standing at the threshold of the earth's cooling system.
My friend mentioned to me that there is a life force that exists in water and water charged air. It's called Prana. I could feel the air filled with cool raw life. It was practically too cold to withstand. Yet I felt compelled to walk against this force. Allowing the ice droplets to cut our faces like thousands of tiny razors.
Leaving behind his video game, the beached Iceburgs were a different source of play for Izzy. He carried off one chunk like a new found friend. I began breathing it all, and turning into Prana.

Let's fast forward passed The South American Lollas (which I'll get to shortly) down to the southern most tip of Chile. To Patagonia where we spent the post Lolla cool down period. The ministry of tourism for Chile initially offered a trip package to our Lolla musicians. A trip to "the end of the world". We've been thinking about it for the last 5 years, but this was the year we made it happen. From Brazil flying across to Chile a good 8 hrs. then driving along country roads for another 5 more hrs. By the end of the day people in the van were passed out. Winding on a jet black slippery mountain road within the Torres Del Paine National Park. There were no street lights. Jackrabbits and foxes darting out in front of us. We were going too fast around the curves- trying to avoid endless pot holes. I kept my mouth shut but could not close my eyes. It was a macho thing. I felt like the moment I said something- we would suddenly be there- and the driver would know I was a wimp... Maybe it's a place you only get to once. A "Trip of a lifetime". I'm making plans for next year to hit Patagonia on the Argentinian side. This is our view from the room @Exploratravel
