Z or Dead
My return to civilisation went very well. It turns out that twenty four years spent learning to act like a normal human being aren't erased by twenty four months living without regular deliveries of lettuce. In fact, it doesn't take long at all to settle back into the usual scheme of things, and have conversations that aren't about snow or penguins. The details of my trivial rehabilitation don't need to be recounted but here are some highlights of the last few months...
Antarctica has grown on me, or at least the cold has, and I'm now embarked and arrived on the next stage of my life, in which I'm studying sea ice physics at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand including fieldwork based out of Scott base on McMurdo sound. This journal therefore lives again as "Solid Seas and South Island". The main URL will become http://the.earth.li/~alex/otago/ and the RSS feeds will be merged together. Along with some mountains and lakes and forests I can even promise further pictures of penguins along with my continuing adventures in Antarctica.
