Torres del Paine,

20th March, 2000.
...Set off early this morning to sunrise and came across another walker, from England I think.  Walking on his own he came up to ask if he could have a look at our map.  He was determined to make Corion (9 hours of walking) that night, as 'you don't have to pay camping fees there'...  He explained further looking at our map, that he had had to burn his last night to keep warm.  'Soo-o cold' he said to himself more than to us rubbing his hands together.  He turned and marched off leaving us with a silent moment of morning bewilderment, wondering if it was our state of mind that seemed a little awry and not his?...
