We flew at 9am this morning Cape Town time, arriving 5.5 hours later at ALCI Airbase on the Queen Maud Land coast. The flight on the Antonov 74 is always a blast, it's one of the gnarliest looking planes ever built, it's noisy as hell inside so they play movies with sub-titles, food is served non-stop and the passengers and crew are a collection of nations from NGO and government bodies - Finns, Indians, English, Chinese, Russians, and an Aussie.

A balmy -5C and light wind greeted us and we were quickly shuttled 15km in modified Toyota Hiluxes down the slope to Oasis Guesthouse. Great to see caretakers Leonid and Nadia again who had a big Russian soup waiting for us.

We spent a couple of hours blowing out early-morning-start cobwebs with a stroll onto a hill overlooking the Lazarev Ice Shelf followed by an amazing dinner prepared by our Chinese chef, Andy.

Altogether a frickin' good start to the trip.

Pic is of the team above the ice shelf.
