The Lift


When I went to Scott Base last week, I got
to see again the only "working" elevator in
Antarctica. The lift, as the Kiwi's call it,
is in the Hillary Field Center and is used
primarily for cargo. A sort of service elevator.
I've seen photos of the elevators at the South
Pole and the French Concordia station, but as
I write this entry, both are having technical
difficulties. Please Stand By.

The Dutch call it the 'Lift' as well ;)

Kind regards from The Netherlands!
