South America -- Antarctic Cruise 2008/2011
In both 2008 and 2011, we took a 60-plus-day cruise completely around South America. Besides seeing both coastlines and cities, we had an amazing week of cruising Antarctica. In 2008, our greatest experience was a visit to South Georgia, something that is very rare for a full-sized cruise ship. Later in the cruise, we sweltered on a cruise up the Amazon river as far as Manaus. So, there was a lot of contrast: big cities and the Pampas, hot Amazon and cold Antarctic, modern high-rises and tiny villages.
This grouping of images is a combined set from both cruises.
