I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

We are not alone

Until the last few days of the trip, we rarely saw another ship, and the only other people we saw were scientists working at the bases on shore.

So this yacht sitting in Paradise Bay was a bit of a shock. Not that there was a boat anchored in this bay, necessarily -- there was an Argentinian research station not far from there -- but that it  apparently got there by sailing through the Drake Passage. I'm a lot more adventurous than I used to be, but I don't think I'll ever be adventurous enough to tackle the Drake Passage in a boat the size of an SUV.
