This post made me laugh - not the part about the laptop - the wind and Caleta Olivia being a dump. I worked down there back in ‘95 ranging from Rio Gallegos to Nuquen but but was unfortunately based out of Canedon Seco, about 20km inland from your current location. Going to Caleta was like going to the city. And yeah it’s a dump. On the plus side, instead of wasting money on a plaza de armas, they built the big concrete ode to petroleum workers. Lol That particular area always had a weird vibe...the people were more serious. The Begrano that was sunk during the Falkland/ Malvenas conflict was stationed in Ushuaia and Comodoro Rivadavia just north of you. Many of the young men who died, hailed from that region, which might explain the vibe. And the wind...oh the WIND. I warned you about that. Everything I owned was sandblasted after a few months. If you can handle the wind, try to get north to Comodoro for New Years. It’s a larger city with more things to do. Good luck w the laptop and Happy 2019!
