Antarctica-Argentine Antarctica-Decepcion Station My first stop in Antarctica. A fantastic sight Well worth all of the Russian Icebreaker rolling in the night. Just pure white everywhere. No photos could do this place justice.
|Posted on the Decepcion Base on Deception Island.|
Antarctica-Gabriel de Castilla Station Quite a lot of penguins around .
|This Postcard was handstamped at the Base. There is no Post Office here , so not really official , but I thought I would show it .|
Antarctica-Chilean Antarctica-Gabriel Gonzalez Videla Station This is a very accurate view of what you will see in this part of Antarctica.
|There is no Post office at this base. So this is just a base stamp . Not official so will want to send a card from a Chilean Base with a Post Office.|
Antarctica-Palmer Station This is a view from Palmer Station a United States base. Not often visited as they limit the number of ships that can arrive per year. Had great burgers here ,the cook was from Alaska.
|I just used the base stamp here. So this card was not posted either. The United States does not claim any part of Antarctica , but they also do not recognise any other claim .|
Antarctica-British Antarctic Territory-Port Lockroy This building is not too far away from Palmer station the US base. But one needs a ship to get between the two. Loads of Gentoo penguins here.
Arrived here about 10.30pm at night. Still bright . The Post office here was mad busy. The ship I was on only had 100 on board but they were still dealing with the mail from other visitors earlier on. A great Post office to visit.
