Ushuaia is the world's most southerly city. From here south, there are just a few islands and then Antarctica. 6 billion people live north of here, only a few hundred, most of them Antarctic researchers, live south of this point.
I have entered many vortexes of late, some more abstract than others, but this Christmas vortex in deepest, deepest Tierra del Fuego was a nice mental boost in late July for those thinking of Christmas.
These are images of the people who once lived in Tierra del Fuego, before the first European settlers arrived. Despite its location, close to Antarctica, the native tribes (Ona, Yaghan and Alacaluf) wore barely anything at all. These images also show the tribes' space-age style ceremonial dress.

I don't believe that the Talking Heads wrote the song 'We are on the road to nowhere' here, in Tierra del Fuego, because they would have gone loopy and murdered each other before they even got the chance to get in the recording studio, after 4 days of nothingness on the buses to get here.
