If you were determined to abandon all civilization, a good place to set sail from would be Ushuaia, Argentina, “The City at the End of the World.” After pulling away from the southernmost city on earth, one of the last man-made structures you’d see would be Les Éclaireurs (“The Enlighteners”) Lighthouse, sitting on a rocky inlet against the backdrop of the Martial mountain range. As the stripes of the still operational, remote-controlled, 100-year-old lighthouse fade into the distance, fur seals, cormorants, sea lions, and penguins would be the last creatures to bid you and other seafarers “adiós.”
