I'm back in Punta Arenas; AMLR 2011 has come to an end. It has been a wonderful experience (Paradise Harbor was a definite highlight). I have no deep philosphical insights to share yet. I fly back to Southern California on the 23rd, so I have a few days to travel around Patagonia and hopefully Tierra del Fuego.
I probaby missed the last few emails at my atsea.noaa.gov email account because the ship email computer was taken down sooner than expected when we came into port. Anyway, that email address is now dormant/defunct, so please email me at my gmail account from now on.
