When one spends as little as two days in a city like Ushuaia, it is obviously difficult to get a good feel of life in its streets. Therefore, what we are left with is a collection of impressions, probably a bit naive, of what stood out and will remain in one’s memory. Here is therefore a series that resulted of a couple walks, or better said, these is how I perceived Ushuaia. (click on pictures to enlarge)
The first sight when one arrives in Ushuaia, that is mountains whose flanks host the city.
Early morning, only a few souls decide to brave the cold weather
Birds flirt in front of a grounded boat.
Humans are busy with their lives like in any city.
Like any harbour, Ushuaia got a street with a couple strip clubs.
Cars were brought from far away, built strong to resist the harsh winters.
Though sometimes cash probably made one revisit its expectations.
As you can see, there aren’t that many people in the streets of Ushuaia. A few passer-by’s here and there, going from one heated place to the other. Yet in a land where temperatures ever hardly raise over 5 degrees celsius, how could it be different?
