Question 4: Where do you stay?
The main station only has enough room for about 120 people, and right now there are around 250 people, so I'm staying at summer camp.
The buildings there are divided up into 10 little areas, each big enough to fit a bed and a clothes cabinet, with a canvas curtain as the door:
Since there are people working and sleeping at all hours of the day, we have to be quiet when we're in the sleeping areas.
The main station has the galley (where they fix our food -- it's all free), a small greenhouse where you can see living plants (especially important for people who live here all winter), a store/post office which is only open for one or two hours each day, a computer lab, and office and lab space where people do their work.
