Anne, Ed, and I have deployed as SPIDER’s first wave. Yesterday was our regularly-scheduled full day in Christchurch. This starts with a trip to the clothing distribution center (CDC) to get our extreme cold weather (ECW) clothing.

Afterwards, we wandered around and explored Christchurch. Starting at the botanical gardens, we got what might be out last dose of flora for a while. Then we went into town and had some great food and drinks. Along the way, we bumped into fellow Antarctic travellers. Christchurch was devastated by an earthquake in early 2011. While there is much still to do, repairs and new construction have progressed remarkably.
