We had high hopes of being able to fly today.  After several days of protests and road blocks in Punta Arenas the crew was ready to load the plane with gear, food and more expedition members and fly to Union Glacier.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen due to a broken fuel pump.  It may be a few days before it can be fixed and the jet is back in the air.
The food and accommodations here are great and we are all doing well.
Best,
