FIRE STATION?

by lsjbentley

Does anyone know where the fire station is? How busy/friendly/large it is? My son is a fireman, and I want to see if I can buy/trade t-shirts/patches.

I had a friend tell me he went to a fire station in the Beagle Channel. Don't know how friendly they are there. Good luck.

The fire Brigade (bomberos) of Ushuaia has a websie with a lot of info: http://www.bomberosushuaia.org.ar. They also have a e-mail adres so maybe you can contact them before you go: bomberosushuaia@speedy.com.ar

The adresses of the fire stations are:
BOMBEROS VOLUNTARIOS USHUAIA - Magallanes 974
BOMBEROS AERONÁUTICA - Airport
BOMBEROS VOLUNTARIOS ZONA NORTE: Soldado Águila 2438
BOMBEROS VOLUNTARIOS 2 DE ABRIL: Héroes de Malvinas 4280

I also found some travel video guides of Ushuaia on www.herotravels.com

The options are interminable. In summer, the landscape can be discovered on foot, in microcomputer, to horse, sailing and even by train; in winter, practicing cross-country skiing and alpine, and traveling through plains in motorcycles of snow or sledges thrown by dogs.

Yerba Mate

by galy

Yerba Mate (pronounced "sherba mahtay") is a cultural drink of ancient origins. It was introduced to the world by the Guarani Indians of South America. More than a drink, Yerba Mate has become a cultural phenomenon throughout South America. All around Argentina people carry their Mate with them throughout the day.
The thing is, being a foreigner, you see the Mates and Bombilas in every shop and window, you see the people carrying thermoses with hot water, but you don't have a chance to taste
it. They don't sell it in restaurants, coffee shops, or anywhere else, for that matter. Finally a nice girl in a souvenir shop in Ushuaia was so nice, to prepare us the Yerba Mate, of her own. We tasted it. Some spit it out, but I think, it has some character to it. Anyway, you probably have to grow up on it to get really fond of it.
To prepare the Mate infusion, the dried minced leaves are placed inside the Mate cup up to 3/4 of its capacity and hot water (approx. 70 C) is added. The infusion is sucked through a metal or wooden pipe called "bombilla," which has a strainer at its lower end to prevent the minced leaves from reaching the mouth

Have you got a yacht?

by andal13

If you have a yacht (that is not my case!), you can sail here, because Ushuaia has a sporty dock (besides the commercial port). Many yachts can be seen at Ushuaia Bay, and there are many shipping lanes to the surrounding islands.

Si tienen un yate (¡que no es mi caso!), pueden navegar aquí, dado que Ushuaia tiene un muelle deportivo (además del puerto comercial). Muchos yates pueden verse en la Bahía de Ushuaia, y hay numerosas rutas náuticas hacia las islas circundantes. You just need a yacht!

¡Tan sólo necesitan un yate!

MARE AUSTRALIS

by galy

This is definitely "off the beaten path" tour. The Mare Australis is a beautiful new small ship (less then 150 passengers), sailing between Ushuaia, in Argentina, and Punta Arenas in Chile, via beagle cannel, Cape horn and the Magellan straight. The round trip takes one week, but you can do the leg of Ushuaia - Punta Arenas, which takes 3 nights or vice versa, for 4 nights. The route back and forth is not exactly the same. Every day there is disembarkation from the ship to the shore, with catamarans, to places you can't reach otherwise. During the day there are lectures on board concerning the history, geography, fauna and flora, as well as a lecture about local drinks aso.
The trip is veeeery expensive, but if you can afford it, it worth every penny.
In the picture, the Mare Australis is the small ship in front of the big one behind it :-))

Simple and nice

by andal13 about El Nuevo Galeón

This is a small, simple, familiar, unassuming restaurant, close to everything. The waiters are very nice.

Este es un restaurante pequeño, sencillo, familiar, sin pretenciones, cerca de todo. Los camareros son muy simpáticos. I ate ravioli with cream sauce; they were OK.

Comí ravioles a la crema; estaban muy bien.
