    Another nice vdo. Funny that the taxi driver recommended the hostel that he owned.
    Wonder what the interior of the nightclub was like
    Sounds like you could have done with a Spot tracker or something like an EPIRB for that solo expedition
    The expedition

    Yeah I didnt know he was the owner untill I saw him in the kitchen later that night, as he just indicated the front door and then went back to work. Never went into any discos in Punta Arenas so I dont know what it was like inside "El Templo". On the solo expedition I had a GPS and followed a track so remote that I doubt an EPIRB would have been that useful... unless a fishing boat could be diverted to the shoreline to mount a search and rescue!

    Episode #38, 44 minutes long. I add some DIY hand grip warmers (they worked well, despite appearances!). Rest of the video is about the British in their efforts to map the Strait of Magellan, the Salesian Catholic mystic Don Bosco and the sad demise of the Selknam native people.

    DIY hand grip warmers... hahaha... necessity - "the mother of all invention"
    The cannonball stuck in the end of the cannon barrel, were the other cannons also similar?
    Human kindness and goodwill... triumphs the evil and..
    78yo working parttime security, I wondered when you first intro'd how he was surviving (financially) in a fairly sparse location accompanied and responsible for the two dogs.
    Shipwrecks, that was interesting, and the two ships/boats leaning on the sides, they looked to be in fairly reasonable shape, as though they were keeled over because of low tide - any obvious reason or ideas what was up with them - were they indeed shipwrecked?
    The history lesson and links back to OZ and specific locations - whats that they say... 2-3 degrees of separation and all that..!?
    Fascinating IMHO...
    Thanks again for linking the vdo and sharing

    Believe it or not the cheap hand warmers worked well. So well they melted the duct tape and kept slipping. I only needed them till I got out of Patagonia so they served their purpose!
    I cant remember if the other cannons had balls in them, or if I even checked. That video was shot some years ago.
    I think the dual wrecks that were still upright were about to be either repaired or wrecked in the ship breaking yard they were moored near.
    Old Jose mentioned he was former Chilean navy, so I assume he had a pension in addition to his security guard job.
    The first wreck in the video, the Lord Lonsdale, was salvaged after and onboard fire and towed to that spot, either to be salvaged or broken up for scrap around the year 1909. But neither happened and its still stands there on the southern approach to the city.
    yes around the early to mid 1800s, Britain had lost the war of Independence with the nascent USA but was still a mighty naval power hungry for more conquests. And that did have a lasting effect of they way the world developed. The Beagle voyage was, in effect, a naval reconnaisance voyage with a possible imperial agenda... but also gave rise to Darwin's Theory of Evolution.
