  1. it’s a historical, astronomical and philosophical geographical journey …. I encourage you to do it again with an excellent camera

  2. Ushuaia is such a beautiful place! I went a few years ago prior to going to Antarctica. I would love to go back, however I don’t know if I would be able to go there and not embark on a ship to Antarctica!

  3. Thank you for introducing me to Ushuaia. I had no idea that it was so beautiful. You have captured it here so well that it makes me want to go there! Thank you {{{Ahmed}}}. <3

  4. Another beautiful place where I have been. Quick note, the lighthouse in the picture is Faro Les Eclaireurs, closer to Ushuaia than the End of the World Lighthouse 🙂
