You're on Antarctica? Cool. Always wanted to go there, as was only like 30 degrees away at one point.

I think it's warmer in Antarctica now than in Finland. It's summer there. We have –25 °C here.

I have no idea what the temperature ranges are there and were there on the mainland of antartica. However, considering it was SUMMER, that was pretty cold weather. It was interesting and I took something like 4k pictures.

There were some pretty rough days and we had to go around this cyclonic storm traveling from South Georgia to Elephant island. Sucked pretty bad.

Anyway, I could chat more about the people and things seen for now enjoy some seals

petrels already claimed them, you have to fly there and collect them yourself.

Back in the USA, I HATE the Buenos Aires airport and the people of Argentina were a-holes both on the flight and in the airport.. by and large. Some were nice but I have no love for Argentina now. Either way, they made AMERICAN airports and the TSA seem like friendly and loveable places.. that is terrible

also have a penguin

The penguins, seals, and whales were so cute! Antarctica was a beautiful place and I liked the tango dancers and empanadas in Argentina.

It is hard to argue with a good empanada.
