Losing ice and perfect teeth.
The Shack departed South Georgia on the 9th of March and signalled a slow but steady transition into winter. At the peak of the summer season there were 34 people on base – BAS, Government officers, builders, reindeer team and museum staff. The reindeer team were first to depart on the Pharos, next it was the Museum staff on various ships that could accommodate them, heading for the Falklands. Then a few weeks after the Shack departed, the builders left. This left, between BAS and the Government, only 11 people on base for the start of the winter.
Another long one this time, but that’s everything up to date now. Next post should be a more reasonable size.
