There we were shown around by a researcher who will be there for the next 12 months. There are 17 of them, all men, and after next month they will be alone there until December. They have US neighbors they can visit on snowmobiles but no ships will be able to get through the ice. We had a drink at their bar - the most southerly bar in the world - and then headed over to Wordy House - a British station last used in the 40's. So interesting to see and it is continuously restored so you can see it as it was then. We had a fantastic zodiac cruise back really close to a gigantic glacier and saw some excellent little bergs. Of course we got soaked getting back to the ship but it didn't matter as we had great hot showers and another 5 course meal waiting for us.
