Dr. RALPH FRÖHNER had this to say about his participation in this expedition:
“I had a fantastic time! Most vivid memory of the trip was the boat tours on the lake.”

When asked what we must keep in this expedition for future years, he listed:
1. HARRY’s horse rodeo entertainment show;
EDITOR NOTE – HARRY says he will do all possible NOT to provide such a show again!!!
2. Dinner in the mountains;
3. The Swiss Chalet dinner and the Schiffklavier music event;
4. The boat tours.

For his overall impression of this expedition, RALPH wrote:
“The Cafe Tortoni Tango show and the flea market in San Telmo in Buenos Aires; the boat tours on the lake; the horse riding to the condor’s nesting area for dinner; the tour to Villa Los Angustura. The Swiss Chalet dinner and the Schiffklavier Music evening was very nice.”

He finished by stating that; “HARRY and NAHUEL did a great job to make the trip a great time for all.”

Our “Patagonian Pathfinder” NAHUEL COCA had this comment:
“I had a wonderful time – not for the landscape, but for the people in the tour: intelligent, critical, life-loving men and women.”
