Speaking of Scott Base, my team was invited over for dinner the other night for a second time this season. I can’t remember if I’ve written about that before, but it’s kind of a treat. They’re known for their good food. They only have about 80 people during summer and 15 during the winter. When we went the other night they were down to 20. Every time I go there, I drag my heels coming back to McMurdo. Their set-up is so much newer, nicer, more coherent, more manageable, prettier, tidier, what else? Oh yeah, Kiwis live there and it’s entirely painted in the color “Chelsea Cucumber” on the outside.
