FALKLAND ISLANDS... Sometimes, it surprises me how one gets to know about another's existence.
In this case, a war.
Human rationale at times can be mind-boggling.
How would remote islands as such end up being part of the sovereignity of the United Kingdom?
& a war for that matter?!
Well, I'm a firm believer that history best remains history.
So, lets not discuss what had happened more than 2 decades ago!
Falkland Islands ... we were there simply because it's part of the itinerary of Explorer II where its main destination is Antarctica.
We're here only for a day.
It was an interesting stopover nonetheless.
A great place to get those souvenirs, btw.
Expensive, but lots of choices.
If you love penguins, this is the place for you!
