In Svalbard. Its very dark. All the time. And its been a bit parky too, -18C on monday. Good there wasnt much wind when I had to mend my fences. Nice to be back and meet friends again. Didnt see any polar bears though- but maybe they saw me?

Fantastic starry sky and swirling northern lights one day (around lunch time actually). Very beautiful. And crunchy snow.
