After leaving the Los Glaciares National Park, The Wandelgek drove east along the southern coastline of Lago Argentino and returned to El Calafate.
In the center of El Calafate, he again visited the La Zorra Taproom, where he enjoyed a delicious pizza with cheese and ham, green olives, lettuce and of course some delicious beer. A sheer tastebud heaven😋😋😋.
He asked one of the employees where he could get dried beef (beef jerky) or dried meat (biltong). Dried meat is a very good tasty, but sturdy and slow digesting food for long roadtrips. After some discussion, he started to make a phone call and then mentioned a shop (La Herradura) further down the road that might have this. This is what I loved about La Zorra. Employees who are willing to help visitors getting around.
After a 15 minute walk through the city center, The Wandelgek arrived at the shop and entered.
The shop was awesome. It was stuffed with all the things that make life great.
Instead of Biltong or Beefjerky, The Wandelgek went for the south american variant of dried Guanaco instead. It was a good choice for a snack which was suitable for long bus journeys. The bags are sealed which means that it is allowed to export them. This was important to The Wandelgek, because the upcoming road trips were border crossing.
Really a cool little deli shop…
After having paid for a couple of sealed dried guanaco meat bags, which are a guanaco meat version of beefjerkey, The Wandelgek returned to La Zorra to drink some beers before returning to his hotel to start packing. He also bought a La Zorra shirt with his favorite beer printed on it. Of course that was the La Zorra Scotch Ale😋.
The plan was to leave the large 75 L Kajka backpack at the hotel for a couple of days and then return to pick it up. Only the most necessary stuff was packed in the Kaipak, including all my cameras 😉.
Then a shower and a bit earlier to bed than usual.
