Our friend and co-worker from Scott Base, Gid, came over today
bearing gifts. These gifts were two containers of ice cream...real
ice cream! Scott Base is a much smaller operation than McMurdo
and their proximity to New Zealand allows them to have the real deal
over on their side of the hill, as opposed to the McMurdo's version
of semi-dairy-semi-betteroffnotknowingwhat'sinthis Frosty Boy.
It was absolutely fantastic as the entire office and the cargo handlers
shared and shared alike. The fact we haven't had real ice cream
for months and the fact that New Zealand's ice cream tastes so good
(I think it's the quality of the milk) made it even better. It's probably
a good thing we don't have it more often, or I'd need my own plane
to go back north!
