Vinson Team is on hold for flying to Antarctica

Jacob called to let us know that the planned flight to Antarctica has been delayed due to high winds both in Punta Arenas and also at the blue ice airstrip on the Union Glacier.  They are hoping to fly this evening.

They spent the day exploring Punta Areans and the twins rubbed “El Dedo Del Indio” (The Indian’s toe) for good luck, as is the custom when visiting the city.


Tashi and Nungshi in front of  the highly polished toe of the Native American. Many thousands of well wishers have rubbed that toe!
