Today was our first day in Antarctica that we didn’t have lots of things to do all day. It was nice to have a somewhat free day to get caught up on things. We will have a pretty good internet connection here which is both good and bad. I can upload pictures, but I can also check the New York Times and see what Obama is up to. I was able to make a few phone calls back home which were a lot of fun. How often do you get a phone call from Antarctica?
