Sunrise and Maria

This morning there was an Antarctic eclipse at sunrise but, unfortunately for us, the sun was not high enough for us to see it. Never the less it was the first Antarctic sunrise for me and very scenic.
The base doctor had gone to the Chilean Frei base today so we weren’t allowed to do fieldwork outside the base for safety reasons. Since Steve and I had been allocated Maria today (i.e on kitchen duty) this was not a problem as we could spend the time between sorting out our data at the base and catching up on some required sleep after our recent energetic fieldwork activities.
