A very bad campsite and a log fire!

This web site has featured many fine places to camp in Central and South America. Some have been splendid wild camping places (e.g. 1, 2, 3) others good commercial campsites (e.g. 1, 2, 3). The site we are currently on in Reo Gallegos, Southern Argentina (ATSA Camping) manages to combine the charm (and smell) of a rubbish dump with the cost of a real camp site! (The oil drum in front of Mel (bottom centre) is being used to burn plastic rubbish and the empty tank (bottom right) is a swimming pool.)

It would be nice to say that the people running the site in some way compensated for its appalling appearance. Nice but untrue! The owner/manager is rude and unhelpful. The site's only redeeming feature is that it is near (not even in) Reo Gallegos and has electrical hook-up.

Some people (well at least Mo, Ann and Judy) take celebrating Christmas very seriously (in a Northern Hemisphere sort of a way). So yesterday Mog held an open house evening with eggnog, chocolate cake, candles, Christmas songs and of course a log fire (all Judy's creations). Note the presents and Christmas tree on the mantelpiece.
