We went to Scott Base last night and as soon as
I get some really cool photos back from Glenn, the
Base Manager, I'll post them and talk about it later.
While we were there though, I got my hands on a
Lemon & Paeroa (L&P). I love L&P! It's only available
in New Zealand (although their motto is "World Famous
in New Zealand"). It's kind of a lemony soda-ish soda
pop. A not so sweet and obnoxious "Mountain Dew".
Anyway, I drink the sugar-free version in New Zealand
and I know that Scott Base usually has some lying
around. We were in their "new" bar and I asked if
I could have one. Unfortunately there was none to
be found, so Lynn and I had to settle for Diet Pepsi...
ugh. We went for a walk around the base and when we
came back, the Kiwi tending bar, held up a can,
gave it to me and said he had found some. No charge,
no worries. He even gave my American tastes a glass
of ice (not really a Kiwi habit, ice in glasses).
I of course was thrilled and savored every drop. Ok,
I shared a sip with Lynn, but only a sip. This L&P
was hard earned and it was mine!
