“Since then, Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia, the extreme limits of Cape Horn, have kept my thoughts busy and carried away my imagination until becoming a second homeland where nothing holds back the soul and the heart.. This South of the South is my home country. Nothing will captivate me in this way again”

Jean Raspail
