Has been an unbelievable experience; the people here are really nice, and extremely good at what they do. The surroundings are indescribably beautiful. I feel privileged to have been given a chance to spent time here. I wish my family, friends and students could see and experience this place for themselves, but I know that very few, if any, will get the opportunity. Have therefore tried to take everybody along for the ride with me through this blog. Hope it was enjoyable!
A few pictures taken in the last two days.
|A small pod of fur seals hanging out near the station|
|A large tabular iceberg seen from the top of the glacier. This one should get its own zipcode!|
|Another beautiful sunset|
|Yesterday was a beautiful full moon!|
|The LMG at the pier ready to depart tomorrow AM.|
And to end it all, I am going back in style(?). My berth is in the cargo hold inside what is jokingly called the "man-can"; 5 bunks jammed into a converted Milvan cargo container! The things one has to do for science! On the positive side, if we hit bad weather, the cargo hold experiences the least roll!
