FROM 2-14. Cape Town-Kerguelens

Port aux Francais

Arrived around 0800 UTC – Berri on a mooring 50 metres from the jetty and we are up in the settlement being rather well lokked after. Settlement just like an Austalian mining camp – demountable buildings for acommodation, communal eating, movies – the works. The Postmaster – selected for his knowledge of philately as well as general soundness of mind – is going to do a special edition envelope commemorating our visit – if you want one posted to you with Kerguelen TAAF stamp, I need snail mail addresses urgently. No promises but I'll do my best.
Norml internet access almost impossible so will go outside into the cold cold wind with the laptop and the satphone and try to send this.
After whch, totally knackered and gong to bed. Saha! Seals and penguins not far from window.

    Isn't this so much better than non-stop from Falmouth to Sydney? Great narrative, look forward to pictures later!
