Where am I?

On my way south again!

Punta Arenas is a small city on the southern tip of Chile, that's where I'm staying at the moment whilst I wait for the weather to fly across the Drake passage to Rothera Research Station on the Antarctic Peninsula. As you can see from the map, I'm not going as far south as I was last year at Halley. In the rest of Antarctica the peninsula is known as the 'banana belt' as it's actually not that cold at all! Summer temperatures rarely drop far below zero and even in winter (winter temperatures have risen by almost 6 degrees Celcius over the past 50 years or so) it's often warm enough to safely lick metal. Is this the real Antarctic? Who cares...it has mountains a plenty and I've packed my snowboard...bring it on!

Your weather is outrageous. I live in Miami, Florida which is probably the opposite equivalent.

Hey let me tell you the other reason why I am contacting you. I am part of a global movement to inspire the world in 25 days through random acts of giving which started on Nov. 22.

Our website is www.thegiftrevolution.com We have reached 6 continents and we are missing Antartica. We really need you.

Low and behold there you are in Antartica. Please go our and find someone to gift and pay it forward. You will be blessed. There is no cost just a minute of your time. The website explains itself.

God Bless and Start a Revolution

Hi Tamsin,

We have something in common! I've been to Antarctica, the cruise ship I was working on the Golden Princess, went there in January 07. It was an awesome once in a lifetime adventure!

Although I didn't set foot on the glaciers I can appreciate the conditions you are working in and I give Kudos to you and for your ice cool blog!
