Even though I have only seen one distant Adelie and no Emperor Penguins while here at McMurdo, there are enough penguins around the base to make up for it! Everyone has the same fixation. There are penguins at the water plant,
penguins at the Field Safety Training Program garage,
penguins collecting library books,
and penguins at the store.
They even have a house,
and tell us what to do!
There are penguins at the hospital,
penguins at Scott's hut,
and, of course, the occasional kiwi.
