The weather is so bad that we have been locked inside for the last 3 days. Yesterday, we have had problems with water supply too.
I have time to think at my sister. To guess how she felt, being in this very base, 4 years ago, just before the beginning of her adventure.
A scientist showed me the room she had for the few nights she has spent here.
I re-read some excerpts of her travelogue, that I wish to share:
Antarctica is the continent of incertitude.
Totally true! You never know what will happen. No idea of the return date, for example. Maybe in 2 days, maybe in 2 weeks. Pretty disconcerting.
We are all aware that we could die here with disconcerting ease.
I guess this was more the case for Gabriela than me… Anyway, the weather is quite scary today, with howling wind.
I am overwhelmed by the beauty of Antarctica.
It couldn’t be said better.
Thank you all for your messages and support! Even if the adventure is marvelous, I miss all of you, as well as Buenos Aires, Villa Crespo and our lovely house.
