Argentina and Chile 2017

I have escaped the dark and cold Swedish winter for two summer months in Argentina and Chile. The ambition is that I will upload pictures here as the trip proceeds. We'll see how that works in practice. Don't expect pictures every day!

For each new batch there will be a new subsite in the list below. (That is, once a site has been uploaded, it will not be modified.) Eventually there might be a best-off summary on this very page here, but that may not happen until I come home.
