Antarctica Dispatch

Journal of my Antarctic experience working to support the United States Antarctic Program.

Sandwich anyone?


Life down here is a bit surreal. During the hustle and bustle of summer you'll see people wearing clown wigs around, grass skirts, 70's retro clothes, etc. Thank God there are a few of those 'free-spirits' around else life might be too boring down here.

Take for instance Allie, otherwise known as 'Sandwich'. She carries around a 'Peter Pan' lunch box she picked up at a garage sale for 50 cents everywhere she goes. No she's not weird, just setting herself apart I guess.

Note 'ears' on hat

This is her first winter down at McMurdo, but she's done two previous summers. Check out her site, read her journal to get a different 'spin' on things, and write her a note.
