Day 28 - Christmas Eve


We got good skiing weather from Antarctica as a Christmas present: the terrain was okayish, the sun shone from a cloudless sky, and the wind remained low. The day went by quickly and unexpectedly, and we skied our best kilometers.

Christmas dinner (photo) was enjoyed as an appetizer in the tent: two slices of prosciutto ham. In addition, the world's smallest piece of Iberico cheese and mixed nuts. A good change to our basic food.

Another topical story related to food. This happened at a grocery store in Punta Arenas:

  • Cheddar has always been an excellent touring cheese
  • Yes, it is
  • Hey, here are cheddars of just the right size and shape
  • Let's take them!
  • (Put 3 kg of cheese in the cart)

On the way here, we wondered how cheese could taste so bad. The structure is also strange: when squeezed, liquid flows out, and when cut, it splits like a salmon fillet. We've been force-feeding ourselves since we have that cheese with us.

Today at breakfast, Mikko noticed that it says "vegetable cheese" on the side. In other words, it was not cheese at all, but “vcheese” and, unfortunately for us, of inferior quality.
