Mac-Town, My Kind of Town

As much as I have LOVED my experience, I have to say: no more buckets for a toilet, no more stinky sleeping bag, no more fighting the tent upon entering and exiting it, and no more penguins waking you up in the middle of the night squawking because I am back in McMurdo. What am I most looking forward to (besides a shower)? FRESHIES!!! I can hardly wait for a crisp green salad with juicy red cherry tomatoes. YUM! Tomorrow starts the busy work. We have to unload everything and put them back in their proper places good as new. I head back to New Zealand on the 29th of November (fingers crossed); I hope the weather doesn't delay my flight.
