He that is a traveler must have the back of an ass to bear all a tongue like the tail of a dog to flatter all, the mouth of a hog to eat what is set before him, the ear of a merchant to hear all and say nothing…. -Thomas Nashe

It was a long day back to Punta Arenas via Puerto Natales.  On the way we passed the cave where the remains of a prehistoric herbivore was found.

The animal was later named a milodon and has become a symbol for Puerto Natales.  At first we thought this was a polar bear, then we realized it was the milodon without showing its big tail.

 In Puerto Natales we visited several tourist agencies trying to figure out whether to take a boat to see cormorants, sea lions, and two glaciers.  Instead we ate a great lunch of grilled, fresh local fish and stir fried vegetables.  Perhaps this gentleman had caught our fish earlier.
