Wild west brothers.. ;- )
There often is a distinct wild-west ambience in the small windblown settlements down here in Patagonia. The settlement near yesterdays finishpoint was no exception, although it consisted of only 1 house.
While the locals friendly-but-toughgoing attitude underlines it, we are bit by bit beginning to fit into the style ourselves.
Visiting the roadhouse/settlement before the start for a nice cup of tea (the englishman) & a bite of chocolate (the dane):
The english entering the establishment w. a wildgrowing beard and brown dusty clothes; the runner w. hair pointing in odd directions & layers of sand in the shoes.
..Both keeping the "mysterious foreigner" silence.
Nb: Hopefully we can upload pic. in 1-2days when near Piedra Buena.
