At the end of the field work, I met , and we seem to only meet in Puerto Williams, on Navarino, with Shaun Russell. Here we are flying back on a chartered plane with a delegation from Ecuador that had visited Puerto Williams. The flight over the Biosphere Reserve was amazing, as the sky was for the most part blue, and the winds virtually absent.
