Happy Midwinter (in Antarctica)


It’s midwinter in Antarctica. I remember my own winter there fondly. The presents, the celebrations, the great sense of community.... and all around the continent fellow Antarcticans sending each other midwinter greetings. Today I received this one from the Chilean Antarctic Institute. Happy Midwinter to you all.


Dear Antarctic Colleagues,

I wish to extend to you all the very best wishes for a happy Midwinter
celebration 2008 (Solsticio de Invierno).

Kindest regards,

Reiner Canales
Chilean Antarctic Institute
