10 January 2020
I'm writing this on 10th of January, just over a week into a brand new year, and exactly 20 days after the austral summer solstice. The season is marching inevitably onwards. Each evening is ending a little earlier than its predecessor, and it seems as though the summer is already starting to creep away. This week's blog post marks another turning point; we're just beyond half way through our deployment. Despite our several weeks of residency so far, there's still a strangeness I feel to being here in Port Lockroy. As if, sometimes, the whole place, Antarctica that is, isn't quite real.
