Comment "AT THE END OF THE WORLD" on Teniente Rodolfo Marsh Martin Base, Antarctica

THAT COULD BE THE TITTLE OF A BEST SELLER BUT IS NOT. IT IS A REAL PLACE!

LET ME TELL YOU THAT I NEVER BEEN THERE BUT I HAVE TALKED TO A LOT OF CHILEAN AIRMEN THAT HAVE FLEW TO THAT MAGIC PLACE.

THE IMAGES YOU SEE NOW ARE QUITE DIFFERENTS DURING THE WINTER. THE SNOW COVER EVERYTHING AND LANDING WITH A "HERCULES" C-130 IS A BIG DEAL. PILOTS AND CREW MEMBERS ARE HIGHLY TRAINED TO ACHIEVE THIS TASK.

VISITORS TO "VILLA LAS ESTRELLAS" , THE VILLAGE WHERE CHILEAN AIRMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES LIVE THE WHOLE YEAR, CAN GO DURING THE SUMMER SEASON ( SOUTH HEMISPHERE ) ONLY BY HIRING SPECIAL TOURS.

IS AN EXPENSIVE TOUR BUT YOU MUST TRY, BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
