December 8

Because there is no bike shop in Porvenir (at least, the hostel manager doesn't know about any), instead of staying two days in Porvenir I am moving to Punta Arenas.

In the morning it was raining but it stopped pretty quickly and there is sun again. I am picking up my washed clothes and I am going to the port. Here I have some headwind but I still manage to get to the traject with enough spare time. So I buy a ticket and wait for the ride to start -- my first part of the journey I am not biking. And it is a wise decision. On top of converting my bike to a boat, I would need to battle the fierce winds which, I am sure of it, would yield me a negative total speed to Punta Arenas. Instead, the traject goes around 30km/h and the wind on the deck is just unbearable. After around two hours, I am leaving the traject and making final kilometers to Punta Arenas.

There I am checking into Hostal Patagonia - a very nice hostel run mainly by volunteers. Today was a crazy day for them (along other things, integration didn't work properly). I felt there like at home because most of the people were from Europe and it was very nice to chat with them

I am staying at the hostel one more day. Mainly to relax, plan ahead and write blog posts
