Glad to report that food is very good at the base camp, because we are
all hungry all the time from working on the Planetary Lake Lander and
the other projects supporting its launch.
We have a dome tent big enough for the whole team to gather at a long
table and eat meals, prepared by our official Chef Nicolas. Although
lunch time can be warm and comfortable, the mornings and evenings are
pretty cold, creating an extra sense of camaraderie when we gather
around the table.
Since all of the gear has to be transported to the Base Camp on
somebody’s back, The meals themselves are often what you might call
“expedition style cuisine”. But it makes us all happy.
