20 January 2012 – Great day today 22km in 9 hrs… cooking. We are just 20 km away from the South Pole now… what a pleasure.
Caught a glimpse of the telescope (at the Scott Amundsen South Pole Science Station) on the way into our final camp. If the weather holds we should be there tomorrow!
Everyone is obviously super excited as you can imagine. Most importantly for the tour of the station, to use their loo and then to celebrate when we return to the way normal people live.
You’ll see from our picture that Nzuzo’s frostbite is looking much better but the good Doctor Berning continues to monitor his progress on a regular basis.
Let you know how we go. Batteries are really taking a pounding so must cut short.
