7.00 AM: Early breakfast at 7:30AM breakfast, and then it’s time to prep for a 9AM landing.
Day 3: Dorian Bay Ocean Nova docked at Dorian Bay.
Day 3: Dorian Bay An Argentine ship docked at Dorian Bay.
9.00 AM: Zodiac over to the shores of Dorian Bay, where we’ve anchored for now. Located on shore are two research huts – one belonging to the Argentines, the other to the British. This is one of the few places where you can find British and Argentine buildings co-existing peacefully. The pissing contests between the researchers of Chile, Argentina and Great Britain over the claims of the peninsula make Antarctica history rather entertaining.
Day 3: Dorian Bay Argentine and British research huts, side by side.
Although the British hut seemed pretty cozy, I can’t imagine living there for extended periods of time. Granted, modern research bases probably have a bit more advanced forms of bathrooms (this hut hasn’t been in use for a while).
Day 3: Damoy Hut Preserved kitchenware in the British hut, which has been turned into a historic location.
Day 3: Damoy Hut Good to know their priorities are straight.
Day 3: Damoy Hut Homemade Fidopoly board – if I remember correctly, the Jail square represents the Argentine hut.
Day 3: Damoy Hut A closer look at the living quarters inside the hut.
Day 3: Damoy Hut Such comfy looking bunk beds.
Day 3: Damoy Hut More bunk beds.
Day 3: Damoy Hut And supplies.
Day 3: Damoy Hut And we’re back in the cozy kitchen.
Day 3: Damoy Hut Canned provisions.
Day 3: Damoy Hut The guestbook inside the hut.
