|What is immediately
apparent is the quality of the websites listed on this page. They are for
the most part works of art. At first we were astounded, then we realized
that most people who go to Antarctica are scientists, writers and researchers.
It's not a place for weaker souls. - The quality of the websites reflect
a finer spirit - if all continents engendered such people we'd have a better
world. We salute the lovers of Antarctica - if you want to become one,
we hope this page acts as bridge - if you go, don't swim at night.
