We had breakfast onboard before boarding a bus at 8:15am for the five-minute ride into town. We were given 90 minutes in Ushuaia to look around before departing for the nearby airport and our flight to Buenos Aires. It was a Saturday morning and most of the shops were closed at this early hour so most folks just window shopped. We were able to buy some chocolate candy!

We arrived at the airport about 10:15am where we checked our bags in and went through security for our 12:15pm charter flight. We departed early and arrived in Buenos Aires about 3:00pm where we claimed our bags and boarded a bus for our hotel.

Our hotel for one night was the Hotel Emperador where we had stayed for a couple of nights before we headed south to Ushuaia to board the ship to Antarctica. For dinner we walked a short distance to a local Italian restaurant called Figaro with travel mates Eric and Sally, Becky and Sandy from the Carolinas. When we arrived about 7:00 it was too early for the locals to dine and there were only two people in the restaurant. By the time we left after 9:00 the restaurant was filled to capacity.
