In the first days here at Carlini station, the weather did not permit us to go out with the zodiacs - the wind was just too strong. But as soon as th the sun came out, I went for a walk around the station and was amazed, how green the island gets in the summer, when the snow had melted away.

Muchos dependemos de la navegación y el buceo para llevar a cabo nuestras actividades. Desde que llegamos a Jubany en diciembre, entendí que el viento es uno de los mayores condicionantes a la hora de trabajar en la caleta. [blog in Spanish and English]

Finally, after what had seemed half an eternity, we left Marambio. The Chilean Twin took us to Frei, the Chilean Antarctic Base. The flight was really nice and short. The view from the plane was spectacular; we could see amazing icebergs, colors and shapes from the air.
