1960's Breakfast: Seriously, We Ate Food From 1969...

Food found in a 1970's remote field camp buried under 10 feet of snow 8 miles from our 2011 camp in the Central Transantarctic Mountains. A crew from camp was sent to remove artifacts from this old remote campsite in Antarctica. One morning I got up for breakfast and in the galley they were serving a normal breakfast of eggs, bacon, and English muffins; however you could also have (from 1969) mandarin oranges, oyster crackers, and yes...fruitcake. I tried the oranges and the fruitcake. Oddly enough the fruitcake actually improved with age.

Christchurch Cathedral - January 2011

An image I just took in January of Christchurch Cathedral in the heart of Christchurch, New Zealand. Begun in 1864 and finished in 1904 it was destroyed in the earthquake last night. So many dead. The poor people of Christchurch. How awful.
