Sea battle monument and the cormorants, Punta Arenas

We took a picture of the sea battle monument with our cruise shop, the Celebrity Infinity, in the background. It is a fascinating monument but we can't find any information about it. It must however be recent and shows muscular men and women blowing horns.

This part the port contains interesting graffiti and modern buildings. A wooden pier is occupied by a colony of cormorants. In the background you see a large oil tanker.

We trokken deze foto van een zeeslag monument met ons cruise schip, de Celebrity Infinity, op de achtergrond. Het is een fascinerend monument maar we kunnen er geen informatie over vinden. Het is echter recent en toont gespierde mannen en vrouwen die op hoorns blazen. 

Dit gedeelte van de haven bevat interessante graffiti en moderne gebouwen. Een houten pier is volledig bezet door Cormorant vogels. Op de achtergrond zie je een enorme tanker.

  7. Het monument is blijkbaar wel gemaakt uit duur materiaal. Wat zijn die vogels ook prachtig en in zo'n hoeveelheid.
