Long street in Capetown
The V&A waterfront tin Capetown. Weather as per usual this time of year, hot.
First Class tickets to Antarctica. Flight time 6 hours to the Russian station.
Antarctica again. Was last here 9 months ago. Where does the time go?
Our accommodation at OASIS, the Russian main station until we can get a feeder flight to the German station Neumayer. At the moment the weather is not great so it might be a while.
A few interest things to see and do though
A day visit to the Indian station MAITRI about a 5 km walk from OASIS across snow and rocks.
The hot room (Banya/sauna) with a nice cold tub for the second stage. Shame it was about 100 degrees when we entered.
Our onward flight to Neumayer (2-3 hours) with 9 winterers on the Basler.
The daily weather ballon from the top of the building.
The atmospheric research platform 'SPUZO'
