Punta Arenas, Chile (Penguin Alert!)

Our last stop in Chile was heading back to Punta Arenas, where our flight landed around 10 days before. We stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast called Tragaluz and spent some time checking out the city.

The big event of our time in Punta Arenas was visiting the Isla Magdalena National Park to view the penguin colony, where I believe they said 150,000 penguins live! You’ll see below that one of them was very interested in my shoe and nibbled on my shoelaces. It was really hard to obey the strict “do not touch” rule! Also, see the baby penguins below – their fur is soft and fuzzy when they’re born.
