Everywhere, I see Volvo, Scania and Maersk. Sweden transports your goods on land, and Denmark on water. “Hurtigruten” is the first Norwegian brand I see. If flying is not enough, if you want to pollute the world by ship, then here’s a Norwegian company! Norway drills oil, and invests the money in oil stocks. Because, as one initiated said, they don’t have “the mathematics” to skip buying oil stocks. The world is crashing because we don’t have the mathematics to save it. If you’re better in mathematics than I am, please fix this.
Today I talked to all sailors in Ushuaia. I walked around to all piers, hit the boats and said “hello”. It was an interesting experience.
Some sailors are super-silent. As in being sailors (in Ushuaia) in order to not having to speak to other people. Others were going elsewhere.
I found a French lady who maybe went to Antarctica, and in that case need at least 4000 euro for an extra passenger. I met another French captain who was full, but super-positive and helped a lot with contacts. I found some full Poles.
And I found a Brazilian guy who went there on January 4, and need 7500 USD to bring me. Going with his sailing boat would be so much cleaner than the cruising ship. But the difference of more than 2000 euro … plus the extra time … I’m not Greta. I’m half of her. I rather take a ship for 2000 euro across the Atlantic than fly, but paying the same from Argentina to Antarctica, and spend an extra month, being propped up in a tiny, tiny boat with that guy … the way he really, really wanted to convince me was scary. I just wanted to run. And I did.
“Ushuaia is the capital of Islas Malvinas” it said in one place. It’s insane with the Falkland Islands propaganda in Argentina. Jesus, every country lost land in war at some point. These islands were Argentinian for a few years in the 19th century, and has been British for at least 167 years. It’s like I would claim Åland. Where people actually speak Swedish, while Falklanders all speak English. Despite the ship below.
We ended the night in an awesome bar with non-alcoholic beer! So delicious with proper beer. Claudia killed me in Jenga though. I liked the place anyway. So many nice beers. Will go back there next week. My drunk week!
