The Igloo

Jan. 25, 2013

We don’t have a heck of a lot of outside entertainment at Concordia, and two of my stationmates decided to build an igloo.  It was really impressive and quite a lot bigger than it looked from the outside. We ended up using the igloo as a sort of extra social space, because you’re never too old to have a fort in Antarctica.
