Perito Moreno, white-blue force of nature in slow motion

Thursday, 25. March 2010 7:00

Wir finden, Gletscher gehören zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten von denen man nicht genug bekommen kann. Diese mächtigen Flüsse komprimierten Schnees sind in der Lage halbe Berge weg zu hobeln. Sie formten und formen mit ihrer Kraft das Gesicht ganzer Kontinente. Der Perito Moreno ist diesbezüglich ein echtes Highlight. Gespeist hoch oben in den Anden, durch täglichen Schneefall, schieben hier seit zig Jahren kontinuierlich gewaltige Eismassen in Zeitlupe zu Tal. Gut zu erreichen, präsentiert er in sprichwörtlich epischer Breite in zig Blautönen seinen gewaltigen, tief zerfurchten Rücken und leckt mit gigantischer eisiger Zunge an unserem überheblichen Selbstbild. Mit gepresstem, lautstarkem Knacken aus seinem Inneren und einem tiefen Grollen fallen dabei ganze „Eisberge“ mit dem Gewicht eines Wohnhauses in das typisch milchig blaugrün farbene Wasser - direkt vor einem, und spülen so mit großen Wellen den letzten Rest von persönlichem Machtgefühl hinfort.

Sensationeller Ausflug, unvergessliches Erlebnis. Wir fangen an zu verstehen, was an den Ausflügen zum Südpol (die man bereits hier buchen kann) so besonders ist.

Weil es doch soooo romandisch war Patagonien Argentinien  Sonnenuntergang am Lago Argentinaund kalt! Wir sind endlich in Patagonien angekommen. Genauer gesagt in El Calafate. Von hier aus werden wir morgen den Moreno Gletscher besuchen. Und dann fährt der El Husseini von El Clafate nach El Chalten. Irgendwie mag ich die Namen hier.

Anyone who has turned up the Clock? Is it really so late?

Thursday, 4. March 2010 7:00

Now we are in fact more than a year on the road. Actually the plan was long to be back in Germany, hard to write applications and strengthened by a long vacation for body and mind, one re-entry into an improved, to perform higher-quality life.

Have we really planned it? Why? What can we expect for even great except for one tied to a stick, the carrot we are tied up in front of the donkey carts tense, the, is no matter how fast we also always gallop in the same unattainable distance dangling in front of our delicious juicy mouth?
Money, an artificial and obviously now fully unleashed an instrument of power in private hands, without feedback to natural resources or economic, without an expiry date and the ability to be accumulated indefinitely. A little tangible paper and coins for the people, but mostly just bits and bytes in the virtual communication networks of the banks. Nevertheless, It is cemented in our minds as a real value. We want it, We want a lot, more like this. Apparently, it allows everyone a decent life. In fact, it is the only way, to the globally completely fallen out of all proportions and balance of a few acquis preserve and enhance natural resources beyond the limits of growth and decay addition to. As if there were infinite resources, as if we were to live forever. As if there were a wallet in the coffin. As if one could eat money actually in doubt.
This unspeakable illusions and the resulting global anti-social and successor generation of people "violate practices of Western civilization were tens of us, especially in poor countries-times kept in mind. Firstly incl visible through the exploitation and destruction of local natural resources. People. In favor of some far away sitting, when viewed in light of an isolated dream world of living Profiteers. But above all, it was this striking, that such "infinite growth" approach under the original, quasi "monetary and banking free" nations lacking. The scale of human happiness is highly individual, we are not certain, that the gross national product is not good for sure.

Not that this was now a big surprise or something new for us. Who has not been protested as "immaculate" teenager against the injustices of this world? We have already at home, and once again decided, after some experiences in Asia, deliberately avert their eyes from these subjects. However, it is a matter conditioned "Sitting at home" made in the nest - with through the mass media, Advertising and soft boiled brains - on the one hand, in constant fear of losing their income and consume the other hand, the need to, counting to want. An entirely different matter, it is, when in fact neither a fixed time job or great money is available, one on the back of his property and the mass media contributes only homeopathic consultation. If one looks spot, what our prosperity, our probably innocent but definitely causes with greedy ulterior motives to Bank have placed money on three corners in the world with man and nature. If one suffers because of this new status is also on site with them, that inevitably lead to the destruction of our physical and sheltered life in trained shield our conscience and arouses shame of himself next to a resulting need help, make it different and better.

We had one years, nothing like that has happened. We now want to return almost empty-handed, to put ourselves back in those same swamp with all its international causalities, that we can not paint at the time still quite nice. Nevertheless, we'll soon have to, we can not help. As a teenager, it is subject to the action-faith one would immensely important and could single-handedly save the world, one has to start only. However, we know, had we waited nothing of the poor countries of this world. No solution to their problems, no extraordinary knowledge, no influence, not even enough money. We simply preach water and drink more wine tourists. We know only our paradoxical, Money-driven affluent society. We are and will remain a part of it. In it successfully (Paradoxien opportunistisch ausnutzend) to move, that is what we have learned, that is what we can - after which we looked at in isolation, even as it delighted us so our microcosm of Germany's "good" goes. It is simply the, what makes us even before this trip and so much more associated.

Schade eigentlich, shall not begin to be commonly, a "Sabatical" would be tantamount to a positive spiritual cleansing? The only thing that has been properly cleaned with us, was the belief that people jointly organized and able to free the long term from its Kantian "self-imposed immaturity", us as set out no exception. We seem to stumble by only a minority in the next. But is not that easy at the end of life? And at least for us, life is too short to fill it so with resentment against ourselves. A serious accident and have to decide a natural disaster in the happiness of life and death, We have quite an impressive show where in doubt is the hammer, or. is. Not in our humble hands. Every day could be the last, you should also enjoy it so. No news, But seldom has made as much sense as last year. We will try to preserve this feeling.

What we will remember with pleasure also, resulting in strength and motivation can draw for the future, is the beauty of the earth. This planet is full of natural wonders, breathtaking landscapes, beautiful and graceful animals… and one thing is, just because we want to do in the future will see more of it and, Soon we will just continue as we have stopped over a year ago. But, full acceptance of our moral hypocrisy. As negative as it may sound, such a great relief it is. When you had somewhere to confession.
We look forward!

More specifically, on the moon. Not surprisingly, they call the area here, on the edge of the Atacama Desert in Chile, Valle de la Luna "also" Tal Worlds ". What is so impressive here looks parallel to the Andes running Kordellera de la Sal. The whole can be during half-day trip from San Pedro de Atacama to visit from the comfort.

As if on another planet II

Monday, 1. March 2010 7:00

The second day gave us a fantastic eye- and sights. Early on the morning went to a geyser field, us directly at sunrise, with its red color transported to Mars. We went on an early bath in a natural thermal source and the Salvador Dali desert to the famous lagoon "Laguna Verde and Laguna Blanca", where our driver, Tour guide and cook erstmal had to change a tire. Only half an hour more and we reached the Bolivian border post in the region and Schwupps we were already in Chile, on the way to San Pedro de Atacama.
