Hi from Chile!

Well... our plane is delayed in Santiago, so I thought I would drop you all a line.

Our last days in Ushuaia were action packed! Everyone made presentation on their research projects and developed timelines for completing them over the next few months. There is tons of great results and we are planning to travel to several conferences to present them.

We had an adventure in Patagonia including a great BBQ (see pic) and we went canoeing!

We ended our last day with a slide show of everyone's FANTASTIC pictures (I will post some on-line soon!) and discussion everyone's firsts. Out of the 29 participants, 9 had never travelled outside North America before, 21 had never been to a pole, 7 had never been on a snow slide (1 had never seen snow) and 13 had never been in the open ocean. Other fists include the first time being away from family for the holidays, the first time seeing whales and the first time in a canoe!

Looks like our flights will be late tomorrow... arg... see you soon!
