Re: Just returned...
Sorry, been quite busy.
The weather was very nice. I understand we were fortunate that it was so good. weather was 30-45 deg F. It actually snowed twice around midnight (was still light). That was a kick to have snowball fights on the ship. By the way, we were on the Marco Polo. If you go on that ship, tell Lorna, DJ Shelly (Sugar) and Ewa-cello player (especially- she is very sweet) hi. Also, the piano player is a blast.
Never did we get cold so you probably won't have trouble there. The rubber boots, necessary to go to shore were indespensible.
As the last post said...take lots of film or memory. I have a 5megapixal Sony digital that produced awesome pictures. Kept about 300 pictures and deleted probably 300 more.
If you can go to the Chilean base, they have a "giftshop" (believe it or not). Best thing there was passport stamps and a map with a stamp (great for framing.
You will be blown away by the sceanery. Miles and miles, hours and hours of unblemished spectacular views.
You will see plenty of penguins as well as other wildlife, whales, seals, interesting birds. The Drake passage was cool too. It was foggy, very mystical.
I envy you for being able to go. I miss it so much.
BTW- if you go through Buenos Aries-SEE a TANGO SHOW! I suggest Che Tango (I think). Awesome.
If you have specific questions, just ask!
Have fun! Eddie from Texas
