Puerto Bories Industrial complex

Built at the start of the 1900's to process, freeze and export meat from Patagonia. Now part museum, part 5 star hotel. Sounds like an offal idea but it seems to work...

When I was trying to find the entrance I asked a chap in overalls where it was and by chance he turned out to be English (from London, but has a house in Aldeburgh, what are the chances?). He's lived here for 15 years and is in charge of sorting all the snagging out on the project. He gave me a tour of the building. Good bloke.

The bar is really smart, might have to head out here tonight for a drink.
