This sign post outside the front of the modules is a stark reminder of just how far I am from the UK, 14255 kilometres to London.
Each day we get in the habit of checking the weather.  Primarily to see the impact of wind chill and sunshine to get a feel of the temperature, influencing how many layers of clothes are put on.
One aspect of working here is the continual dressing and undressing.  Each building has a boot room by the main entry points where all our gear can be hung up and dried.  With so many people these rooms are very busy, so you quickly learn to place your gear to ease both retrieval and avoid others picking up your kit.
