Sheep Estancia & House in Porvenir, Tierra del Fuego

sheep estancia

(Above): A building on one of the old sheep estancias. The lonely steppes behind are fairly typical of the northern two-thirds of the island. Life on one of these stations, particularly for the workers, must have been very limited.

(Right): A contemporary house in Porvenir. This one happened to house the only person on the island who could repair our flat tire.
