Post’d: Cards, rec’d from farthest reaches of ocean & continents (Jan. 2020)

Another postcard bonanza (“bonanza” used again for pal in Dubai) from such remote areas and the ghost of Shackleton)

Ergo: assorted British Overseas territories (disputed) Falkland Islands, South Georgia & South Sandwich Islands, and Argentina on the way to Antartica.

Have some geography fun and track down these locations on a map and follow along the rambles of a fine Son of Vancouver.

Bonus: The Weakerthans sing about Shakleton (the explorer who’s influential book is pictured upon the black/white card) in Our Retired Explorer (Dines with Michel Foucault in Paris, 1961)
