Dec 8 – Last day!

Peter, Chris, Kristof and I fly to Christchurch today in a c-17. Rest of the team flies out on the 11th after finishing packing and shipping the robot to the U.S.

I have been ready to leave now that everything I needed to do is done. However, I woke up in the morning feeling rather sad. I have met many interesting, intelligent, eccentric, and wonderful people here, had many interesting conversations and discussions, learned something useful from everyone I met, and now I may never meet many of these people again.

Emma came to see us off at the "terminal".

A Terrabus drove us the airfield.

The C-17 lands.

We had to wait out in the snow for more than an hour while cargo was being unloaded from the C-17. We passed the time by napping (Chris in this photo) and playing Euchre (a card game Peter taught us).
