Trip Moments

Punta Arenas, an important port close to the Strait of Magellan, faces the islands of Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica across the sea. It is not only one of the southernmost cities on the planet, but also one of the important gateways to the Antarctic. .
Climb to the highest observation deck, and look at the distant coastline. It is hard to imagine that at this moment I have stood at the southernmost city, facing the South Pole across the sea.
Not far from this viewing platform is the Magellan Monument Square. The square is not big, and the Magellan Monument in the middle is surrounded by lush green plants. Because of the wind blowing over the years, these green plants have slowly grown in one direction, which is very interesting. The Magellan Monument seems to be very inconspicuous, but there is a mysterious legend. It is said that kissing Magellan's big ankles can bring luck, and in his lifetime, he will definitely return here to reunite with this "great man." Because of this legend, his big ankle has been touched by tourists.
Walk in the town, under the blue sky, the clouds are blown into a trace by the wind, floating in the air, super dynamic, and Punta Arenas under the blue sky and white clouds is also more gorgeous Colorful.
But in recent decades, the town has become one of the fastest growing cities in the world. The pollution of human activities has made the ozone layer more and more serious, and the ultraviolet rays brought to people. The threat of radiation is gradually increasing. Just walking on the street for a little while, I feel that my face is sunburned, so I must always take sunscreen measures.
