The "time flies" theory doesn't work here. Imagine ferrying through a majestic fjord on Lake Argentino toward Upsala Glacier. Time has slowed, but you can't take in the scenery fast enough. The Andes look like petrified ocean waves against the blue sky. Framing everything perfectly. Time freezes in Patagonia when you're having so much fun.
