Date: 23 January 2008
Altitude: Close to sea level
Maximum and Minimum Temperatures: - 2 degrees C (McMurdo) & - 35 degrees C (South Pole)
We had a 3 hours comfortable flight from South Pole to McMurdo this morning. We were picked up by a bus at the airfield that is located on the sea ice some 10 km from the US McMurdo Station. When we arrived at McMurdo Station we received a brief from the NSF Representative and had an interesting guided tour to Scott’s hut. It feels like having been arrived in a big city when we suddenly are surrounded by more than 1000 persons.
