From Rio Gallegos to Antarctica

We left yesterday from Rio Gallegos to Antarctica on a C-130 Hercules. The same one that departed from Buenos Aires the day before. While the accomodations cannot be considered first class, the crew made the flight very enjoyable. It was smooth and without turbulence, and in four hours we were in Rio Gallegos. Spent the night there and the next day we departed for the Marambio Base, in the Antarctic Peninsula.
