After weeks of intense activity spent on networking activities, last week at the Pole felt like things were back to normal. Normal included some troubleshooting work and data integration test runs, but there were some quiet times during the week as well. Was it cold outside? Of course it was (it’s not only the South Pole but it’s winter!), but that didn’t stop anyone from participating in the South Pole’s Pride parade. Marchers braved the cold, stopping to take group photos at both the geographic and the ceremonial South Pole sites.
