Hello chums, it’s been an eventful couple of weeks for your Antarctic correspondent.
Cinco de Mayo was celebrated in style, though it did morph into somewhat of a homage to the “day of the dead”.
Blizzards continue sporadically, making dining oft-times challenging.
Behind the scenes, “Awesome Mawson” have been pumping out push-ups in a quest to do their bit to raise mental health awareness via the Push-up Challenge fundraising campaign.
A brief period of fine weather saw a flurry of activity as several groups took it in turns to head out into the field over the weekend to enjoy some much needed R & R.
The blizzards have returned for now. Darkness has set in. Soon it will be midwinter. A time to slow down and savour the actuality of being here.
