Geography can take you places....

A few years ago, in my 'A' level classes I had a student called James.
As I type this, he's a long way from KES. He's on board the RSS 'James Clark Ross' off the coast of Rothera base in Antarctica. He's taking part in a research expedition called ADELIE. This is aimed at exploring ocean currents around Antarctica and their effect on organisms called KRILL.
And here he is in Antarctica yesterday, walking towards the beach where there are (normally) lots of penguins.
Check out the weblink above for a photo diary of the trip to what can be a particularly EXTREME environment.

oh, and there's been no snow yet....
