    Hi Anne,
    Funny : Its a small world after all < 2 pictures on the same place, 12 days between,in one of the remotest and inaccessible place in the world
    From 17 november untill date of visit 29 november, ice did not change a lot, but the Emperors were going in another side of the colony.

    My picture late in the afternoon.
    Have you been in Neumayer or in Sanae stations ? Staff ?

    @Jo: Yes, I met some friends from Neumayer station. In 12 days the colony does not change too much but the difference to last year is huge.
