Room Change and More Penguins
To give a little idea of the living conditions, here are some pictures of my old room. The picture on the right was my corner (in the back right of the room).
My Corner of the Room
Kurt Liewer's Corner
The other two people share the left side of the room. Some of the rooms are set up with bunk beds (these beds are convertible), but those rooms typically have couches and/or televisions and so need more floor space for them. Our room has nothing except the small refrigerator that is in every room I've been in. This picture was taken through the doorway.
I'll cover my new room another day, when I get my half organized (I'm not sure my roommate ever cleans his side.
We've seen more penguins in the last few days. Today we saw three today coming back from Willey. Two were asleep along side the road (we didn't stop for fear of waking them), and this one was waddling along near the transition.
