Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide and director of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Chile:
December, 31st. Hello everyone, still from the edge of the world - Punta Arenas!
Yesterday, at the very last moment, our flight to Antarctica was canceled. The weather is unstable. In order not to waste time and get used to the south, we went almost 100 km to the south - to the San Isidro Lighthouse on the very edge of the mainland of South America. On the way, we visited Fort Bulnes, a reconstructed village of the first settlers, walked through the magical Patagonian forest and the coast along the Strait of Magellan.
In the evening, we were informed that there was a chance of a flight. We rushed to pack our things, but at the last moment we were given the hang up. So we're back in standby mode. We don't know yet where we will celebrate the New Year.
Nevertheless, we sincerely congratulate everyone on the upcoming year and send the warmest greetings from the edge of the world! May everything work out for you and us! We keep our fingers crossed and three legs at the monument to Magellan.
