I don't know if anyone will find this interesting, but I thought I would put it up just in case
My Dad, Nick Slope, is an archaeologist and historian, who has does some TV docs and lectures on history etc and also works on cruise ships. One of the cruise ships he is on at the moment has been denied entry into Argentinian. This is what he wrote on FB, which also made the BBC news:
Fantastic last couple of days! Arrived Buenos Ares Monday (20 Feb) ready to sail for Falklands but Argentinian authorities refused to let the ship sail until 2am – no doubt hoping that we would not have time to get there but we did! Never realised what a beautiful place the Falklands were and spent a great day touring some of the battlefields. We then set off for Cape Horn and rounded it in good weather. We then headed for the Argentinean Port of Ushuaia but they refused to let us in! We were followed by the Princes Cruise ship the Star Princess and they were also refused entry and we all made the news: (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-17184955).
I’ve been refused entry to a few pubs in my time but never a country! I’m glad to report that the Argentinean plan backfired as instead of landing we slowly traversed the Beagle Channel in perfect weather and it was awesome!
I find the above a bit worrying and I am asking myself what the outcome will be.....
