A bicycle tourist fights his way down the dusty end of the Panamerican Highway between Ushuaia and Río Grande. Ushuaia, says local researcher Sergio Luppo, has ten times the amount of airborne dust and combustion pollution as Frieburg, Germany, a less-windy city with three times the population of Ushuaia. Plans proceed in Tierra del Fuego to pave the national highway and city streets, but thanks to budget restraints, the government is proceeding slowly.
