Heading Home...

I finally left Antarctica several days ago. We flew from South Pole, a 3 hour flight, to McMurdo on the coast, where we spent a couple of hours waiting for our plane from New Zealand to arrive. Then we made the 5 hour flight to Christchurch, NZ, where we were greeted with humidity and the lovely smell of dirt and vegetation and the best part, a night sky. We haven't seen the darkness since we left NZ at the first of November. I didn't think I had missed it, but apparently I have.

These photos are from our flights. This is what happens when one ends a season at South Pole and makes their way back to the real world...
