Sunday the 30th of March 2003- Day 40
I was awoken at 5.30am to catch the bus to Rio Gallegos bus which was part of the package. Promised I would not wake the English Girls, but I wasnt packed and even thought the staff were meant to wake me 30 minutes before departure, they decided to wake me 10 minutes before, so it was rush, rush. I slept in my clothes which was one good thing. It was cold and dark as we pushed off. No sign of Leah or Jay but must have spent the rest of the night drinking. Had no interest in finding them and waking them. It was a nice but very cold drive to Rio…. most of the way. The drive shaft broke or was about to. We were stopped for an hour while trying to fit it. No luck. We had to wait until a van from Rio came (luckily we were half way there). Got a cheapie hotel from the Lonely Planet and had an early night after visiting the supermarket and cutting my hair.
