Ok, ok I just arrived in Antarctica and I feel like a ten year old at Christmas - but try not to show it. I remember this kind of scene, you want to go everywhere and look at everything all at once, but first there is boring stuff to get done and also, you're also wondering why it is that only the new arrivals are wrapped up so much in pretty all their new gear and the people who already live there seem to be wearing far less than you are? The green jackets are used at South Pole Station, so the guy in the green jacket is a Polie.
