And Then Some News

The first paragraph of Thursday's essay, "Ushuaia (a virtual tour), Argentina," reads as follows:

(Please be aware as you read this essay that we were neither allowed into the country of Argentina nor allowed to dock in Ushuaia on this cruise. What you will read here is a virtual tour of the city—as if we had visited it, but we did not!)

Ushuaia (pronounced oo-shoo-AYE-ah) is an Italian word meaning "a bay penetrating westward."—the port we missed—is a city of 80,000 people and is the southernmost city on earth and forms the end of the Panamerican Highway. I have written this "virtual tour" of the city as if we had visited it.
