My very first card from Antarctica :D It was sent by Adrienne "adriennegarry".
Zodiac cruising in brash ice among the iceberg spires in Curtiss Bay, Antarctic Peninsula.

"Antarctica is Earth's southernmost continent, encapsulating the South Pole. Antarctica, on average, is the coldest, driest, and windiest continent, and has the highest average elevation of all the continents. Is considered a desert with annual precipitation of only 200 mm (8 inches) along the coast and far less inland.There are no permanent human residents, but anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 people reside throughout the year at the research stations scattered across the continent.
The Antarctic Treaty was signed in 1959 by twelve countries; to date, forty-six countries have signed the treaty. The treaty prohibits military activities and mineral mining, supports scientific research, and protects the continent's ecozone." - in:
