A book review is published since this week in SIBIRICA vol 70 no 2 (2017) pp221-222.
I reviewed the book from Enrico Mazzoli: “Carl Weyprecht and the International Polar Year”. It was interesting and I liked to work on it and it reminded me on my PhD thesis when I worked through all the archive material in Vienna.
14 June 2017: The Ladies from the Shirley’s Ladies Friendship Club (305 New Brighton Road) invited me for a talk on the Antarctic. Their final comment was: “we like your passion and enthusiasm, could you deliver another talk to us next year?”
The group will call me soon to make new arrangements for another presentation. I suggested a history talk on the Antarctic and they seemed delighted about it.
My next talk is at the Rotary Club (Cashmere) – on working in the Antarctic as lecturer – 12 July 2017.
Digging out the weather station from PCAS course 2015 – and still happy
At 1 June I gave a talk at the Redwood Garden Club. This group was very nice and I learned a lot about roses and other garden matters. Many were really interested in the topic and I was glad to answer all sorts of questions after the talk on living in the Antarctic.
On 14 June I will give another presentation at the Shirley Ladies Club and on 12 July at the Rotary Club (men only). That will be very interesting.
