Photographer's Note

Inside this chapel is a Pope Francis Portrait and his Zucchetto. Pope Francis prior to being elected to Pope was the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in Argentina.

On our visit to Argentine Base Esperanza located on the Trinity Peninsula. It is a inhabited year round by Argentine families. This base was founded in 1953 and holds the distinction of the birth of Emilio Palma on 7 January 1978. Emilio was the first person to be born in Antarctica.

We saw the historic stone hut where Andersson, Duse and Grunden from the 1903 Nordenskjold Swedish expedition lived. We also visited a small museum, chapel and the school house.

Wildlife seen: Adélie Penguins, Gentoo Penguins and Snowy Sheathbill. On our Zodiac ride back to the ship we saw a Leopard Seal.
