Lovely Christchurch, New Zealand is the city from which all McMurdo Station
personnel depart. While we were waiting to get outfitted in our cold weather
gear and catch our transport (a C-130 Hercules flown by the New Zealand air
force), we got to walk around the city,
so green in high spring. We had some nice dinners out together, see how our
strong personality traits come out in this dinner VIDEO! We had some great
views from the plane of mountain after mountain covered in snow (Snowbird on
crack!) and amazing, Europa-like fractures in sea ice.
