Puerto Natales

We did not have a great sleep at the hostel for the oddest reason - we were WAY TOO HOT! Nearly freezing outside and hear cranked. They, and many other places received complaints that it was too cold at night, so they crank the heat up and at our place at least it was forced air and we couldn't open the window. It felt like it was 28C or warmer in the room, we slept on top of the sheets and we're just uncomfortable. Breakfast was nice, we had yogurt, toast, I made a ham and cheese toasty, tea, juice (way too sweet). We had our bus tickets and got on the bus to Puerto Natales at 10. We dozed off just after getting out of town for about 2 hours out of the 3. We noticed that it was very windy, lots of sheep and rolling hills.
The town of Puerto Natales looks small but it's quite big when you start wandering around and take a couple of wrong turns.
We went to Erratic Rock, an outdoor store, hostel and bar for their 3pm talk on the Torres del Paine park and hikes - super helpful, great staff. After we rented a sleeping bag for me and tent stakes and a set of poles. Then we went food shopping and we hope we've got enough.
Went back to the hostel and I did some repacking while Brian had a nap. Then we found out that the WiFi wasn't working. We went for a walk and took a couple of wrong turns, Brian blames it on being so far south and his direction sense is off. We enjoyed the walk, met a couple of very nice dogs and found this great coffee shop/creperie, where we had a very yummy salad and coffees... At 9pm woops! It was so light out, we didn't realize it was so late. Back at Erratic Rock for a large beer and tacos and then bed and then we'll be truly off the grid for a few days!
