Mid-Winter - Solsticio de Invierno - 21 de junio 2007

Celebración del Solsticio de Invierno 2007 en la Base Artigas

La Dotación Antarkos 23 de la Base Científica Antártica Artigas, tiene el agrado de saludarlos en este Solsticio de invierno.
Esperamos que al igual que en nuestra base, los lazos de unión, la solidaridad y la confraternidad antártica primen sobre las diferencias y que el momento de recogimiento y meditación de la noche más larga, sirva para extraer lo más puro que exista en nuestros corazones.
Aprovechando la ocasión, los invitamos a acercarse hasta nuestra base, la noche del 21 de junio de 2007, donde haremos un brindis por el solsticio y una ceremonia de “recepción” de los novatos que por primera vez sienten en su piel el rigor del invierno antártico.

Feliz solsticio de invierno,
Feliz día de la confraternidad antártica,
Happy Mid-Winter Day.

Estimados Expedicionarios,

Estoy intendo poner un comentario en vuestro blog antártico. Nosotros cuando no teníamos comentarios, nos alegraban cuando empezaron a aparecer. Me parece interesante el trabajo que realizan, porque puede ser útil para toda la humanidad y la Antártida es un espacio común de todos, por las riquezas científicas que alberga (aparte de las materiales), etc. Si se aburren, pasen por nuestro blog.

Saludos cordiales de este blogero español. Desde...

Mid-Winter Greetings
Time sure flies! I haven’t even put up my sunset posting and it is already Mid-Winter.
It is a longstanding tradition that the Antarctic stations send each other some Mid-Winter greetings. So, over the last few days they have been trickling in.
I think the prize for the most poetic one goes to the Uruguayans. Here is what they wrote:

The Antarkos 23 Crew of Artigas Scientific Base in Antarctica, has the pleasure to greet you in this Solstice of winter.
We hoped, that like in our base, the bows of union, solidarity and the Antarctic confraternity prioritize on the differences and in this moment of meditation it could be good time to extract the purest feelings existing in our hearts.
Taking advantage on the occasion, we invited all of you to approach to our base, the night of the Mid Winter on June 21st, 2007, where we will make a toast by the solstice and a ceremony of “reception” for the novices who for the first time feel in their skin the rigor of the Antarctic Winter.
Happy Solstice day
Happy Antarctica Confraternity Day
Happy Mid-Winter Day

I am also glad that W and Laura took time out of their busy schedules to personally dispatch a message to us:

THE WHITE HOUSE
WASHINGTON
June 8, 2007
I send greetings to those celebrating Midwinter’s Day on June 21, 2007.
Since the signing of the Antarctic Treaty in 1959, men and women from around the world have ventured to Antarctica in the spirit of discovery and exploration. This bold calling continues to inspire individuals to pursue research in stations throughout Antarctica and further expand the horizons of human knowledge. Their work has changed the way we understand our world, and their dedication is helping us explore new frontiers in science and technology.

I appreciate those in Antarctica who’ have come together to take on the challenges and opportunities of this magnificent continent. Your efforts reflect the finest values of the human spirit –daring, discipline, ingenuity, and unity in the pursuit of great goals. Laura and I send our best wishes.
George W. Bush

Oddly, we also got a message from an Antarctica Anonymous group based on the Palmyra Atoll in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
