Hello Martin, all,
Martin thanks very much for the link (Antarctica daily adventures)
that I should not have forgotten to include!
Oh my...too many issues to think about, fast.
Indeed here we also do follow their wanderings in the cold Antarctic
deserts with a strange mix if anxious and pleasent feelings and we
enjoy so much their extraordinary findings.
I foresee a superb and very original exhibit of "cold wonders" in
Ensisheim soon. And what a lecture in perspective!
You can't miss this!
The other mistake I want to correct is the name of Vinciane, one of
the important leading members of the Antarctic expedition.
Her family name is well DEBAILLE, not Debienne.
Thanks Martin, thanks Etienne.
