10/11 – On repart vers les Andes !

Nous quittons la Péninsule de Valdes et ses baleines,  des souvenirs plein la tête, et repartons vers les Andes, à l’ouest : encore quelques heures de bus, trajet de nuit, mais maintenant nous y sommes habitués et  dormons sans problème !…Lever du jour sur les montagnes andines…

Arrivés à ESQUEL, nous trouvons une auberge de jeunesse bien sympathique où nous pouvons faire nos repas…Changement de température, il fait froid…Petite randonnée au lac  Zeta, pour nous mettre en jambes…A part un couple de français que nous croisons en chemin, la route n’est pas très fréquentée.

Mais les possibilités de randonner sont limitées : il y a peu de sentiers et  nous arrivons un peu trop tôt dans la saison… Nous optons pour une excursion en bateau sur le Lago Puelo, situé dans le Parc National Los Alerces : bof, le côté très touristique de l’excursion ne nous a pas séduits, mais le lac était  bien beau ! Les Alerces – cyprès ou mélèzes de Patagonie -  sont de très hauts arbres dont certains atteignent 4000 ans !…Nous verrons un spécimen âgé de 2600 ans, ce qui est déjà un âge tout à fait respectable !…

Nouveau trajet en bus pour remonter un peu plus au nord dans la Région des Lacs :

               . El Bolson est une petite ville où s’installèrent de nombreux hippies dans les années 1970. Sur le marché du samedi, nous rencontrons Felicitas, une jeune femme qui vend des confitures de framboises qu’elle confectionne. Elle apprend le français car elle a le projet d’aller l’an prochain rendre visite à sa sœur qui habite Genève. 

               . Bariloche (ou San Carlos de Bariloche), située le long du lac Nahuel Huapi,  est la station de ski phare pour les argentins . Certes les montagnes enneigées qui bordent le lac en font un cadre exceptionnel mais nous sommes un peu déçus par cette ville sans charme, et décidons d’en repartir rapidement.

                . Villa La Angostura :  nous élisons domicile pour plusieurs jours à l’auberge de jeunesse de cette petite ville au bord du lac Nahuel Huapi…Les conditions météo depuis El Bolson sont très mauvaises (froid, pluie et même neige sur les sommets…), il va falloir encore une fois réviser à la baisse nos projets de randonnées…Après consultation des prévisions météo, une lucarne d’éclaircie s’annonce et nous louons une voiture pour faire sur deux jours la très belle “ruta de los siete lagos” (route des sept lacs) : près de 350 kms sur une route le plus souvent non asphaltée, mais quel régal ! ces lacs glaciaires sont d’une grande beauté…Ici c’est le printemps,  les sommets encore enneigés, les genêts  en fleurs,…Pique-nique, et même sieste au bord du lac Traful…calme absolu…

Tout à coup une dizaine de chevaux dévalent la colline pour venir se désaltérer…puis repartent tranquillement sans s’occuper de nous.

 

 

 

 

DSC03883 La saison de pêche vient tout juste de démarrer, et là, on s’aperçoit rapidement que l’on a affaire à des “pros” équipés jusqu’aux dents !…La truite se pêche “à la mouche”…

 

 

 

 

 

 DSC03921Nous faisons halte à San Martin de los Andes, jolie petite ville de montagne au bord du lago Lacar. Il est tard, nous cherchons un restaurant : un vieil argentin du coin nous indique – en français – un “bon restaurant” : pavé de saumon avec gratin de courgettes, suivi d’un délicieux crumble aux fruits rouge accompagné d’une glace à la vanille, humm !…cela nous change de la soupe en sachet et du jambon cru qui depuis quelques temps constituent l’essentiel de nos repas !

 

 

On comprend que les argentins soient nombreux à venir passer leurs vacances dans cette superbe région, que ce soit l’hiver pour y faire du ski ou l’été pour profiter de la pêche, de la randonnée à pied ou à cheval, ou des sports d’eaux vives…Les campings et les locations affichent alors complet ; de nombreux argentins aisés y possèdent aussi, en résidence secondaire, de cossus chalets entourés de verdure.

Retour à Villa la Angostura : la pluie se remet à tomber au moment où nous arrivons à l’auberge ! Nous retrouvons avec plaisir la sympathique équipe de l’auberge, mais apprécions beaucoup moins la musique qui y “sévit” du matin au soir…Ce n’est d’ailleurs pas spécifique à cette auberge : nous la retrouvons dans les bus, dans les cafés, les restos…Le silence, c’est bien aussi !…

DSC03864 Ah, j’allais oublier de vous dire que la Région des Lacs est spécialisée dans le chocolat ! Les rues débordent de magasins tous plus attirants les uns que les autres : comment résister ?

  5. Cronkite Movie Wednesday 10/26I was very excited to see “The Pelican Brief” because it stars two of my favorite actors: Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington. I was also told that the movie was a mystery, thriller type of movie and that happens to be my favorite kind of movie to watch. But enough of my personal biases; what is the movie about? Well, the story begins with two Supreme Court justices being killed. JULIA ROBERTS is a damsel in distress when she writes a brief, theorizing what and who was behind the murder of two Supreme Court justices. She ends up crating a theory that seems scarily correct. The brief manages to get into top political aides hands and it eventually lands in the lap of a reporter. DENZEL WASHINGTON is the investigative reporter who sees some merit in her theory and reluctantly decides to offer his help in tracking down the bad guys.This movie had a great plot and Washington and Roberts had a ton of chemistry on screen together. The movie is not the typical popcorn movie; you actually have to watch it and keep up, but I promise it is worth it. Politics, mystery, thrills, chemistry, and amazing actors? This masterpiece is definitely my cup of tea.

  6. Victor Merina, senior correspondent and special projects editor at Reznet and Ina Jaffe, national desk correspondent from NPR provided some interesting insight on Monday night in regards to handling sensitive situations when out reporting in the field.Jaffe suggested that when dealing with sensitive issues, simply, “…don’t make it worse!” She used the example of a school shooting where children lost friends and experienced traumatic events. The situation would clearly have been made more difficult for both her and the children had she spoken directly to them. Instead, she chose to stick to the officials such as police and various administrators to avoid “making it worse.” One interesting piece that both Jaffe and Merina agreed upon was not to push for deadlines, but rather to focus on following through with the people you are doing a story on. Showing honest interest in their lives and taking the extra time to follow up with them and better understand their situation in the context of their lives is critical. This is something that I could easily find myself falling short on. I give Jaffe and Merina kudos for their ability to really immerse themselves in situations that are often very unpleasant to be a part of.Jaffe shared the importance of being patient and empathetic with interviewees. Often times, it will be difficult to approach someone who has just experienced great tragedy. I think that finding a true balance between comforting someone and being empathetic while maintaining a professional demeanor would be a very difficult art to master. One tip that was shared was to allow people to ask questions while you are reporting. Answering questions such as, “How does that microphone work?” or “How long have you been a reporter?” can make an interviewee feel comfortable talking to you and gives a familiar understanding of why you are there and who you are.There were many points brought up in Monday’s conversation that I had never really considered before. Hearing the discussion and the questions that were asked allowed me to realize that there will be difficult times in a job as a reporter. I found it very helpful to gain some insight on how to handle these situations should they arise throughout my journalism career.

  7. I never thought that I would see a connection between the media cycles and science-fiction. Science-fiction always seemed like an unreal reality. Eric Newton showed that science-fiction can become reality. In his presentation he showed that the “crazy” thinking of science-fiction mirrors the technology we have today. “The Jetsons” had Skype. “Star Trek” used cell phones. “2001: A Space Odyssey” had the iPad. “The Jetsons,” “Star Trek” and “2001: A Space Odyssey” were created in the 1960s which was decades before any of these technologies were created. The 1960s were a part of Generation X whose big media medium was TV newscast. The technologies during this era included satellite, cable and video tape. These technologies were not even close to what was being presented on TV and film. Not many people would think that technology of “Star Trek” or “The Jetsons” would become a reality about four decades later.Newton pointed out that we tend base what the future will be like from what we know. In the 1960s, the people only knew a limited amount of what technology could be. Eric Newton said to predict the future we must think “crazy.” There was someone who thought “crazy” and brought their ideas to reality. These ideas shaped how we use technology and how we get our news. Each generation has grown up with a different media medium. It will be interesting to see what technologies the next generations use as a medium or what science-fiction technology will be made into reality. After listening to his presentation, the possibilities of what the future could be seem endless.

  8. According to Eric Newton of the Knight Foundation, my grandchildren will have computers attached to their brains. No, Newton doesn’t have a crystal ball—he has a formula of predicting the future of media based on patterns of communication in the past, a thorough investigation of media as it is today, and even by taking some inspiration from science fiction (he presented three modern technologies, Skype, cell phones and the iPad, and showed us how they were “predicted” by science fiction almost half a century ago in “The Jetsons,” “Star Trek” and 2001: A Space Odyssey, respectively). The underlying theme of the entire Must See Monday was the fact that the future is “crazy.” Although Newton is understandably proud of his formula, it really could just as kooky as Harold Camping’s rapture prediction earlier this year. Newton suggested that students prepare themselves by learning to perform in the future that has been/is being predicted, while also being flexible to a random turn-of-events.

    It would be an understatement to say that my mind was blown at tonight’s Must See Monday. Among a couple other things that changed in me tonight is my respect for science-fiction. Before Eric Newton’s lecture, my feelings of science fiction was the same as my feelings on fairytales: unrealistic and a waste of time. I’ll admit I judged science fiction without any real knowledge on it. Nonetheless, my new found understanding for the subject has raised many questions and opened many possibilities in my head. Eric Newton talked about the ever changing media and how it is portrayed. These days, thinking out of the box is simply not enough. “Think crazy” should be coined the new expression for innovators in this digital age. He emphasized that the media changes every so often due to crisis. It is an almost comforting thought that out of catastrophe comes awakenings. The cyber generation that boomed from 9-11 and the recession is fascinating but not as intriguing generation visionary and generation hybrid. The thought of robotics, media implants and a war against machines is a little intimidating but now seems more likely to happen. Once the lecture hit the Enlightened generation, I had already felt as if I had been taken far, far into the future. I’m guessing this was “the point of no return” as Eric Newton had said. I must add though that when we get that advanced into technology, I’m not sure I’d want to return to the simpler times. That being said, tonight’s Must See Monday was one that will resonate as I learn and grow with this digital age

    This week’s Cronkite’s night at the movies was thrilling to say the least. “The Pelican Brief” was thrilling and exhilarating. The movie is surrounded by a conspiracy underlying the murder of two very different Supreme Court justices sends people into a frenzy, causing numerous murders and leads to a complicated journey to the truth. The murders that take place at the beginning of the movie are very intriguing and really reel the audience in. One thing this movie does really well is the use of the “shock factor.” A lot of the murders to me were so unexpected and bizarre. The story really leaves the audience asking themselves what just happened and what is going to happen next. Each time I thought it couldn’t get any crazier it does, which makes for a great story and movie. Another thing the movie really displays well is paranoia. The characters show it well and there were even times where I got paranoid just watching it. The fact that the reporter gets paranoid in his cabin shows his belief in Darby’s story and understanding of the seriousness of what they are dealing with. There were many times in the movie when I found myself thinking this can’t get any worse, then some light shines on the subject only to get even darker than it was before. The action was very effective as there were times when my heart started racing in anticipation especially during the parking garage scene toward the end of the movie. A part from being really entertaining I found the investigative reporting very well thought out. Although they do some sneaking that could be thought of as bad, I think that there intentions were very pure. Once again, this movie made me appreciate journalism. The reporter, Grantham, knew how serious obtaining information on the brief was but he investigated it anyway. It really boosted my assurance that journalism is the profession for me. Although not all stories are going to be as exciting or life threatening as the one in the movie, my goal is to help people which is ultimately what Grantham does by taking on this story. I am really glad that I attended this week’s movie as it was super entertaining. I could find myself watching this movie again.

  14. Tonight we had the wonderful opportunity to listen to Eric Newton, senior adviser to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. I was originally planning on attending simply because it was worth double-extra credit, however, after listening to Mr. Newton speak, I am glad that I decided to go. His lecture about the changes in media over the decades was truly intriguing. To think about where we will be in forty years is almost a scary thought. The vast advancements and changes in technology that are going to occur are enough to change the way in which we live. Interacting with another species that isn’t human is such a strange concept and I find it hard to envision how it is all going to work. It is almost worrying to think that we could be getting into World War 4.0 with a race that isn’t human. I’m not sure I want to be here when that happens. This Must See Monday was extremely interesting and kept me hooked until the very end.

  19. I work in the solar industry and have, on occasion, worked wineries up and down the state. I was surprised to learn from one winery owner that the bulk of his outside labor force was paid very, very well. Apparently, the need for skilled, reliable workers far outweighed the increased cost to retain good help. Of course, these wines are not commodities and command premium prices.

  20. A story of conspiracy, The Pelican Brief, starring award-winning actors Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington, depicts a thrilling and suspenseful investigation. I’ve always been fascinated with Washington D.C, and this film drives my intrigue even further because of its exposure of corruption within the capital. Also, it successfully demonstrates how far some people will go to cover up their lies and greed. As a journalist, this movie inspires me to dig deep for the truth, despite the possible frightening outcomes on the other end, like the blowing up of a car and most dramatically murder, as shown in the movie. Even though the film doesn’t exhibit all journalistic principles, such as when Darby (Roberts) lies about who she is in order to find Gray (Washington), the characters portray an honest search for answers. The movie beings with shocking deaths and then everyone who learns about the brief appears to be dying , but Gray’s curiosity and Darby’s persistence lead them to expose what a corrupt and murderous man Mattiece was. For a Cronkite Night at the movies this deserves five stars.
