    The Falklands Design

    When we were in Antarctica at Port Lockroy, we were told at the post office there (which belongs to the British) that our mails will be directed to UK before it's being sent to the rest of the world.

    So, I simply wonder if that's what happened here as well. Imagine mails having to be forwarded to the North end of the world before going to Australia! That's a little crazy... but you never know ;-)
    If anyone on VT knows the answer to this, I'll appreciate it very much if you'll just send an email to me. It's a very interesting question which I've no answer as yet!

    Peat

    Peat as defined in my dictionary is "decayed plant matter in bogs, dried for fuel".

    The locals still use this form of energy.
    I guess it's for cooking. I've never heard of a heater or air-conditioner that uses peat! ;-)
