As I've already mentioned before, one of my highlights in South America was the Torres del Paine national park in Chilean Patagonia. So it was with great sadness that, whilst reading some online news articles, I discovered that it was being severely damaged by forest fires. What's even worse is that is was started by a (Czech) camper who wanted to save money and camped outside of the designated camping grounds. And even though it shouldn't surprise me any more, whenever I hear stories like this it makes me marvel at Man's boundless stupidity.
