My first day in Punta Arenas and i'm welcomed by a wind tempest! I was thinking this place was extremely windy, but yesterday was just out of control!
After i left you i went downtown, and stopped on the main square.. it was madness! For ten minutes i was hanging on to a pole and couldn't stop laughing!.. Then i refocused and started shooting pictures of people desperately trying to cross the streets, walking with a 45 degrees angle to the ground.. cops tying ropes around the poles to prevent people from being blown under the passing cars, or helping kids and old ladies to walk...
Boy! If there's that much wind when i hike in the mountain i may just fly straight back home without a plane ticket!
