Don’t laugh…It’s true!
Our christmas was, to say the least, unusual!
We asked the Information Centre whether we should book a restaurant for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. They said no. They were right as nearly everywhere is closed….They didn’t tell us that!
It seems here Xmas Eve is the main family night.
So, on Xmas Eve we roamed the empty streets looking for somewhere for dinner!
We eventually found a little place and went in…Well…It was like Faulty Towers. Actually it was really funny as the waiter was just like Basil Faulty. Just like Basil he got everything wrong.
We had NO IDEA what we were going to get. At first we thought it was just a buffet…so we stuffed ourselves on that (it wasn’t very nice but we thought that was it) Then we saw people eating steak etc and found out it was a set meal..except we hadn’t been told that. Basil ignored us for some reason.
Eventually in desperation,We asked a local if she could possibly speak to Basil and order our meal for us,, which she did . Suddenly a steak arrived!
It was really very funny and those in the restaurant saw the funny side of a shipwreck. We weren’t the only ones ignored. I’m sure Manuel was there somewhere too!
I skyped home and Merry and the family were enjoying a lovely dinner at Merry’s brother, Pete’s place. Karen as always, turned on a right royal lunch.. It was lovely to talk to them but I wish Mr Skype could find a way of beaming up some of Karen’s lunch to Tierra Del Fuego!
Christmas Day was no better….actually worse! We had a nice morning visiting the National Park and taking some pictures…One is the mandatory picture of the sign at the ” bottom of the world” The weather is nice today and the scenery simply stunning
Then back to town for our Christmas lunch. We couldn’t find anywhere except the IRISH PUB of all places. Not a big menu! So Irish stew it was for Christmas!
