Still, every now and then, one cannot stop but think about some humongous moments in one's life – moments that have changed everything about their life.

Now I know this isn't the nicest topic out there, but in Antarctica, human waste is a major talking point - especially once you're out in the field.  Our group went over the arrangements before we left Christchurch, so we all knew what to expect - and as it's one of the things I keep getting asked about now that I'm home, I thought I'd share it with you.  Aren't ... read more...
