Bratina Project start to finish 9 - Home again

 Made it home last night at about 9pm. We left Scott base for the airfield pegaus at about 12.30pm and after seeing a couple of Emperor penguins along the road we made it to the staging area. After waiting for a couple of hours, seeing the C17 fly in and be unloaded at about 4am we were shuffled into the plane eventually getting to Christchurch around 10am.

 After getting into Christchurch we had to clear customs (which is very interesting with 30kg of samples in toe) and return our assigned gear to Antarctica New Zealand. Then all there was left to do is wait for our flight to Hamilton. I will give more details about my trip in due course but as you can imagine I have a lot to do and not much time to do it in!
Thanks for reading,
Stephen
